Hi, I guess in all of our lives we want to do something we could be proud of. I've been very lucky in mine - but I really am proud to be a part of Make-A-Wish and I know you are too. Thanks a lot. - Mick
The best gift I ever got was on June 8, 1995 when an organ donor gave me and five other patients at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas the organs we needed to live. I guess you could say I got another time at bat.
Now I want to give something back. I can do that first by telling kids and parents to take care of their bodies. Don't drink or do drugs. Your health is the main thing you've got, so don't blow it.
Second, think hard about being an organ and tissue donor if the time ever comes. Sign up and let your family know!
Thanks for your prayers and kindness. I'll never be able to make up all I owe God and the American people. But if you will join me in supporting the cause of organ and tissue donation, it would be a great start.
