SAX MAN—Saxophonist from My Brother’s Keeper

LEAH DUNCAN, wife of organ recipient Todd Duncan, says, “the thing to me is not just sav- ing a life, it is saving the whole family.”

The Center for Organ Re-

covery and Education, a federally designated not- for-profit organ procure- ment organization joined the Multicultural Task Force to present “Celebra- tion of Praise,” a free gospel concert to promote the need for organ donors among multicultural communities. The event was held July

30 at the August Wilson Center for African Ameri- can Culture, Downtown. The concert was part of the commemoration of the 15th annual National Minority Donor Awareness Day on Aug. 1. “Because conditions such

as diabetes and hyperten- sion are often more preva- lent in the minority com- munity,minoritiesmake up

PATRICE MILES, National MOTTEP executive director, talks about the program, as well as how well the Pittsburgh Branch of MOTTEP is doing about getting people to sign up to be a donor.

more than 50 percent of the people on the national organ transplant list,” said Susan Stuart, president and CEO of CORE. “At the same time, minorities com- prise only about a quarter of the registered organ donors today.We hope that events such as ‘Celebration of Praise’will compel people to register as an organ donor. Few things are more precious than the life-sav- ing gift of an organ.” Reverend Loran Mann,

pastor of Pentecostal Tem- ple COGIC served as the emcee. CORE provided at- tendees with the option to register as an organ donor along with offering preven- tive health information. (For more information, call 1- 800-DONORS-7.)

MOM DONOR—Salaya Martin with her daughter Samaya and sis- ter Shania Warren. Samaya had an intestine transplant when she was 3 years old. Salaya Martin said, “Organ donation is very im- portant because it gave my daughter life, before the transplant they were giving Samaya a few months to live and now she is a viable 5-year-old that brings such joy to my life and others. It is very im- portant in the Black community because we are No. 1 as those who need transplants and we are the least that donate so we need to get the word out about the importance of giving the gift of life.”

SPECIAL GIFT—Organ recipi- ent Samaya Martin receives gift bag with a backpack. She shows it off.

CHILD DONOR—Roschelle Ogbuji holding her two daughters, Ngozi and Nkiru. Roschelle is a donor parent, she lost three chil- dren in a house fire in 2008. She said, “It is very important to me. I made the choice to donate life cause I knew there was another mother waiting for what I could give her and my daughter Anya could live on and they don’t have to experience the loss of a child and I didn’t want anyone else to have to experience that loss.”

CORE raises voices of praise for donor awareness
