Last Sunday, April 7th, I was interviewed with Allison Smith, Vice President of Operations at Gift of Hope, to speak about organ donation and National Organ & Tissue Donation Awareness week. Her are links to the podcast of our interview. The podcast is titled: Podcast: 04/08/13 – With new lungs and a kidney, Chicagoan Steve Ferkau jokes that he’s slowly becoming a girl from Iowa. Eternally grateful, Steve makes a great case for all of us to become organ and tissue donors.
Quite a long title! The podcast is around 25 minutes long – but I think it’s quite a nice interview.

April is National Donate Life Month so if you haven't signed up to be an organ and tissue donor, now would be a good time. And if you're not sure, our guests today might put you over the top. Allison Smith is Vice President of Operations for the Gift of Hope Organ and Tissue Donor Network, and Steve Ferkau is an organ donor recipient, twice over. He jokes that he's slowly being rebuilt into a girl from Iowa but takes very seriously the life-saving gifts of organ donation that he's received.
