About: Organ donation need:Mary Keltner shares close-to-home story

By Shelley Heavrin, Executive Director
Kentucky Circuit Court Clerk's Trust for Life

Wow - what a story. It truly does prove what a great need organ donation is, in our Kentucky community.

Signing the back of your license is a good start, however, even more important is to go to and register to be an organ donor.

This ensures that, if in the rare chance, you could become an organ donor, your wishes would be fufilled.

Signing your license, and using the orange donor dot is great, but if you were able to become a donor, and your license was not with you, your family would not be aware of your wishes...unless you are on the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

Go to and support Mary and all waiting recipients.

There are 108,000 in our country and over 700 in Kentucky today, waiting.

Joining the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry will give hope to these waiting recipients, and their families and friends.

Thanks for all your work in Adair County and South Central Kentucky. Mary is in my prayers always. -Shelley Heavrin
