Various Illinois organizations will be working together to promote organ and tissue donor awareness. A new ad campaign features 13 year-old heart recipient Mikahla Thornton and Brittney Payton, daughter of Walter Payton, who say in the ad, “Be an organ donor because to the world you may only be one person, but to one person you may be the world.” For more information on the new organ and tissue donor program campaign, call 312-814-8301.
