This is the season to give, a wonderful time of the year.

It takes a lot of kindness and love to donate organs that can be used by people in need. In your time of great sorrow, you had the desire to donate your son's organs. Many people will benefit from your actions. Not only the people whom received your donations, but to all the people who are on Transplant List and waiting throughout the United States for a transplant.

There are many transplants that can come from living donors. One kidney or portions of the pancreas, lung, or, liver can all be donated by living donors. Also bone marrow can be donated. Information can be found at kidney.org or local hospitals.

Michael Gisondi and his mother Tammy Buckley gave the greatest gift one human can give another human. We could use many more people with an attitude like theirs.

I am on a kidney transplant list and hope there are many more unselfish people willing to donate a life saving gift.
