Over 21,000 transplant patients are on the California donor list waiting for a life-saving organ donation, yet California is in the bottom eight for donor registration.
San Diego, California (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
In an effort to increase organ donations and benefit transplant patients, the FanForLife team from the offices of Paul Taylor DMD will be waving gigantic foam fingers along with hundreds of other San Diegans on April 28th at the FanForLife Fest at Petco Park. Paul Taylor Dentistry is participating in this Wave of Hope in order to increase awareness about the severe shortage of organ donations in the state of California.
Dr. Taylor, along with three other staff members, formed a FanForLife team in order to gather donations and increase awareness for the event. On April 28th the team will participate in the FanForLife Fest and walk for the cause. Celebrity athletes, a DJ, booths, and food will be set up at Petco Park as members walk, while foam fingers will be made available to all attendees for a $20 donation. The afternoon will commence when all participants stand shoulder-to-shoulder over the Harbor Drive Bridge to raise their foam fingers in one great Wave of Hope for all to see.
“Here at Advanced Dentistry, the staff and I are excited to get involved with the FanForLife campaign. Helping those in need and our community is extremely important to us and we are so happy to be able to make a difference,” said Paul Taylor, DMD.
Over 21,000 transplant patients are on the California donor list waiting for a life-saving organ donation, yet California is in the bottom eight for donor registration. Dr. Taylor’s team and the FanForLife program strive to encourage more California citizens to register for organ donation. Proceeds are also used to improve the quality of life for transplant patients by providing transportation to and from dialysis treatments, food vouchers, and pre-dental clearances for patients who need to get onto the wait list.
