A group from Swedish Medical Center (a transplant center in Seattle) and LifeCenter Northwest (the organ procurement organization serving Alaska, Northern Idaho, Montana, and Washington) climbed to the summit of Mt. Rainier yesterday and held a live webcast and chat.

It was all done as part of an effort to educate the public on the importance of becoming an organ donor.

I missed the webcast, but I definitely support the effort. If you haven’t registered to be an organ donor, do it today. It only takes a few minutes. Just go to Donate Life website and register with the state where you live. Remember to tell your family about your decision. If you have an iPhone, you can download the DonateLives app.
