Assemblyman Karl Brabenec not too long ago donated roughly 600 surgical masks to the Rockland Organ Donation Alliance (RODA). The masks had been accepted by the President of RODA, Michael Prendergast, a transplant recipient himself.
The Rockland Organ Donation Alliance consists of organ recipients, donor households, dwelling donors, pals, households and public officers. The alliance is affiliated with LiveOnNY, a federally-established organ procurement group. Collectively, each RODA and LiveOnNY are working to guard immune-suppressed organ recipients throughout COVID-19.
“RODA and LiveOnNY gratefully thank Assemblyman Karl Brabenec for these personal-protection face masks and, most significantly, for his continued assist of organ and tissue donation laws within the New York State Meeting,” mentioned Prendergast.
The donation comes throughout Organ Donation Month and Donate Life Month. With practically 10,000 New Yorkers at present ready for a lifesaving organ transplant, there’s a want for organ donors. To enroll within the NYS Donate Life Registry, go to www.rodany.org and click on register.
