Donor Alliance urges Latinos to say “yes”

As Hispanic Heritage month spans from September 15- October 15, Donor Alliance, the nonprofit organ procurement organization that serves Colorado and Wyoming, is urging the Latino community to register their decision to be organ and tissues and talk to their families about donation. More than 1,700 people in Colorado and Wyoming are waiting for a lifesaving transplant. More than 400 of them are Latino. Tony and his wife are two of those 400. They have been waiting for kidney transplants for more than a year and are asking the community to say "yes" to donation.
