Our Goal is to provide information on the issue of organ donation and help the efforts to increase the number of registered organ donors. The ability to transplant organs, bone, tissue, bone marrow and more enables people to literally save each other's lives. Life-saving transplants are happening every day around the world - Yet, due to the low number of registered donors, many people are dying as they wait for the organs that can save them.
Howard Romanoff and his family became immersed in the issues surrounding organ donation in 2007, when Howard was diagnosed with Ideopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Five long years later, Howard required a lung transplant and the Romanoff’s faced firsthand the impossibly low numbers on the organ donor registry. Thankfully, Howard received his lungs in time, but many don’t. It was then that the Romanoffs knew they wanted to continue helping the efforts to increase awareness and education of organ donation, with the hope of sharing life to save more lives.
