Make Jasmine's Wish Come True
Jasmine Bass is a Columbus resident and LifeLink volunteer who is also awaiting the gift of a lifesaving kidney transplant, mirroring the story of KC Taylor, the main character in The Wish. This event is dedicated to Jasmine, as well as the rest of the 5,372 Georgians awaiting the gift of life from an organ donor today.
- 91% of Georgians awaiting an organ transplant are in need of a kidney.
- 66% of Georgians awaiting a kidney transplant are Black.
- Kidney failure impacts minority communities at a high rate due to the prevelence of conditions, like high blood pressure and diabetes, which contribute to kidney disease.
- One organ donor could save eight lives, and improve the lives of dozens more through tissue donation.
