Transplant Expo Launches in Boston to Educate About Miracle of Transplantation and Address Organ Donor Shortage
Date:5/26/2009

ers from Donate Life New England will be on-site to answer questions and provide visitors with the opportunity to join the state donor registry.

On May 30 and May 31, those visiting the Transplant Expo will have the opportunity to receive a complimentary ticket to Inspiring Action, an evening hosted by The Creative Coalition featuring leaders and personalities from film and television who will participate in a one night performance that brings attention and inspiration to the vital need for health care reform and support for organ donation. The Creative Coalition is the leading nonprofit, nonpartisan, social and public advocacy organization of the arts and entertainment community. The event will take place Sunday evening, May 31 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.

Also, on Sunday, May 31, from noon until 4 p.m., Chris Klug, bronze medalist snowboarder and liver transplant recipient, will be on-site at the Expo to greet attendees. On Monday, June 1 at 6 a.m., Astellas First Annual Making Strides: A 5K Run/Walk for Organ Donation will take place on the banks of Boston's Charles River. Transplant professionals attending the American Transplant Congress, as well as the public are invited to run or walk to show their support for the transplant community. For every finisher, Astellas will donate $1 - up to $20,000 total - to the National Transplant Assistance Fund (NTAF), a 501c3 nonprofit organization that helps transplant patients (hopefuls and recipients) afford critical but uninsured medically related expenses through fundraising guidance, patient resources and support, as well as financial assistance. Celebrating 25 years of service, NTAF has helped patients, their families and communities nationwide raise more than $58 million (and counting) for out-of-pocket expenses related to transplantation.
