Organ Donation Advocacy: The Role of the Mid-South Transplant Foundation in Saving Lives

Host Andrew Bartolotta sits down with Kim Van Frank, Executive Director of the Mid-South Transplant Foundation, to discuss the life-changing impact of organ and tissue donation. With over 100,000 Americans waiting for a life-saving transplant, the need for donors has never been greater. Every 9 minutes, another person is added to the waiting list, and 17 people die each day because the organs they need are not donated in time.

In this powerful conversation, Kim shares the mission of the Mid-South Transplant Foundation and the ways they’re working to save and transform lives in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee. We also explore common misconceptions about organ donation, the importance of registering as a donor, and communicating your decision with your family.

Learn about the incredible impact one donor can have by saving up to 8 lives, restoring sight to 2 people, and enhancing the lives of more than 75 others. We also discuss community partnerships, the emotional connection between donor families and recipients, and the Walk of Honor as a way to celebrate the heroes who’ve made a difference.
