Have A Heart: A Downloadable Poem About Organ Donation

Have A Heart: A Downloadable Photo Poem

This poem was originally written to encourage a young man to keep his spirits up as he waited for a heart and kidney to become available. He was in the hospital for months, sometimes very sick and even close to death.  At times, when a heart or kidney would be available, he was too sick to undergo the surgery.  Ultimately, he was able to undergo two transplant surgeries, the heart and the kidney, within a couple of days, and the surgery was indeed successful.  He, and his family, are forever grateful to the donors and the donor families, and to the wonderful doctors and nurses and healthcare professionals who saved his life.

Today, several years later, he has graduated college, and he travels the country speaking and meeting with people to encourage organ donation.

This is what it’s all about. And others will benefit. Lives will be saved.

It might be yours, or someone you love.


“Be a gift. Have a heart.

Be the one to save a life:

your life will live again.”
