Date:3/25/2009

OAKLAND, Calif., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Transplant Donor Network today issued the following statement on the donation by Officer John Hege who was recently killed in the line of duty:

"Our hearts go out to the family of Officer John Hege, who gave his life to protect our community. Officer Hege was registered on the Donate Life California Organ & Tissue Registry, which his family also supports. He chose in death as he did in life to help those in need. His organ donations saved the lives of four adult males from California, and his tissue donation will enhance the lives of as many as 50 others. Officer Hege's liver, kidneys and heart were donated. The transplants were successfully completed yesterday and early this morning. We know that those who have received his gifts thank him and his family with gratitude and a shared sense of loss at his passing."

"Officer Hege's untimely death, while tragic, and the extraordinary support of his family also provide an opportunity to inspire others to commit to becoming donors by registering at www.donatelifecalifornia.org. All of us at the California Transplant Donor Network thank Officer Hege for these generous gifts, and on behalf of the more than 21,000 Californians who desperately wait for the gift of life from those like Officer Hege. Such donors recognize that donation can save lives and bring hope to family members at their most difficult time."
