Pinnacle Women hear Danielle Dehn
Special to The Monitor
PAYNE SPRINGS–The August luncheon of the Pinnacle Women’s Club featured Danielle Dehn, coordinator for the Southwest Transplant Alliance, who stressed the importance of organ and tissue donations by citing that “nationally, more than 102,000 individuals are awaiting transplants, 10,000 in the State of Texas alone.”
She explained the painful process in which families are faced with these decisions, often not knowing the wishes of their loved ones.
Their website, www.donatelifetexas.org,  provides a vital tool to record a family members’ consent or non-consent on these issues.
“You can no longer just sign the back of your driver’s license to indicate your desire to be a donor. You must give specific consent of your wishes or your immediate next of kin will be faced with making this choice for you,” Dehn said.
East Texas resident Pam Westbrook, who received a liver transplant five years ago, also addressed the group sharing her story of gratitude to the family of “her angel” who gave her the gift of life as a result of participation in the organ donation program.
