Organ Donation's Biggest Fan: Clutch "The Rockets Bear"

Written by Robert Boudwin, aka Clutch "The Rockets Bear"

In 2011 after my Dad had suffered for four years from IPF - a degenerative and terminal lung disease that has no known cure or treatment - his health was getting rapidly worse and the only solution left was a lung transplant. Knowing that someone you love is in need of an organ transplant is a nerve wracking experience. Because organs are in high demand and short supply, doctors must ensure that organs go to those patients who can benefit the most. To be a candidate you need to be sick enough to significantly benefit from a transplant, but not so sick that the transplant won’t help if there are other problems. The only thing we could do was hope and pray for a donor before things got worse.

Organ Donation is Close to Our Hearts - From Outlive Yourself Awards Media Sponsors CBS11/TXA21

From our 2015 Outlive Yourself Awards Media Sponsor: CBS 11/TXA 21

Organ donation has touched the CBS 11/TXA 21 family in a very personal way. Two years before she joined our team, CBS 11 News Reporter Elizabeth Dinh was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. It was November 2010, right before Thanksgiving and both of her kidneys were failing. Only 30 years old at the time, the words “kidney disease” were frightening to Elizabeth -- and to her family. She was working at a TV station in Seattle, a very long way from her native North Texas, her parents and her six brothers. Suddenly, she went from being ready to take on the world to wondering whether she would be alive to do it. Her kidneys were functioning at just 13%. Fortunately, Elizabeth’s husband, Kevin, was a suitable match, and in June 2012, he donated one of his kidneys to her. Today, Elizabeth is healthy and has an even greater appreciation for life and for the selfless gift she received. We think she is a wonderful testament to the importance of registering as an organ donor.
