This symbolic ring signifies the start of a new life and gives tribute to the gift of life they have received. Right now, approximately 100,000 patients nationwide are waiting for life-saving transplantation. That’s why it’s important for physicians, community groups and businesses to become active partners in grassroots efforts to promote donation awareness.
