March 2022 has certainly been a crazy month for the Organ Donation Heroes committee, especially in regards to new projects being created to spread awareness about organ donation. There are so many moments to choose from, but this one was absolute favorite. Meet Ashley Raffin, a junior at Magnificat High School. Before talking to Ashely, she had no idea about the significance of organ donation. "I hadn't really thought about it until now. It was just a random question that appeared to me when getting my license at the BMV." She was not an organ donor, as she did not realize the significance of being an organ donor. However, I took the time to explain why organ donation was important to not only me, but to donors, recipients, etc. I did not think much about our conversation, until later I received a text from her. She took the initiative to become a registered organ donor! I was so excited not only because a new potential hero of the organ donation community has been registered, but also that I made a difference just through a simple conversation. Thank you, Ashley!
