43 The Wendy Marx Foundation for Organ Donor Awareness




Description

This article is from the Organ Transplant FAQ, by mike_holloway@hotmail.com (Michael Holloway) with numerous contributions by others.

43 The Wendy Marx Foundation for Organ Donor Awareness

Dedicated to educating people about organ donor awareness. It was
formed in 1990 after Wendy Marx received a liver transplant. The
Foundation has helped sponsor the U S Transplant Games; formed the U S
Sports Council on Organ Donation, which includes athletes, coaches, team
managers and sports media representatives; launched Dribblin' for Donors
on the collegiate basketball level; and has spread the word in many
presentations throughout the country to schools, corporations and the
press.

"Talk, Talk, Talk," is a video aimed at reaching junior high school students
and their families on the issue of organ donation. The eight-minute video
features Olympic champion Carl Lewis and liver transplant recipient Wendy
Marx. The video will have the most impact if a transplant recipient or donor
family member is able to accompany it in a classroom.

Wendy Marx can be reached at WEMarx@aol.com
The Foundation can be reached at 202/546-7270 or 322 S. Carolina Street, SE;
Washington DC 20003
