I wanted to post a little more on Rep. Glenda Dawson:
Glenda's passion was the promotion of organ donation. Nineteen years ago, Glenda herself was an organ recipient, receiving a kidney from her younger sister, Diane after enduring eighteen years of dialysis. She used these experiences as an organ recipient to increase awareness and education to help others. In her second term in the Texas Legislature, Glenda established the DEAR Program, which creates a statewide organ donation registry and organ donation education programs. Glenda was proud to see the DEAR Registry go into effect September 1, 2006.
