Thank You to Egg Donors, Sperm Donors, Embryo Donors and Surrogates on National Donor Day

By February 10, 2013

Donation on donor day.

February 14th is National Donor Day, celebrating those who don't just give of their heart symbolically (for Valentine's Day) but also those who literally give their heart (among other organs) when they become an organ donor.

Most organ donations are only possible after a person has left this world, but the kinds of donors that grace the fertility world give while healthy and very much alive. Egg donors, sperm donors, and embryo donors are an essential key to those unable to conceive otherwise. Surrogates may not totally qualify as "donors", but in a way, they are. They lend their entire body.

Let's say thank you to donors today. Your gift doesn't only potentially give life to a new baby, but also creates a new mother or new father. Your gift gives hope. And your gift aids in the creation of an entire new family. Thank you.

Are you a donor? Or has your life been touched by donation? Please leave a comment with your thoughts or thanks to the donors!

Thanks for your useful article. One other problem is that mesothelioma cancer is generally due
to the inhalation of fibres from asbestos, which is a dangerous material.
It truly is commonly found among individuals in the construction industry with long contact
with asbestos. It could be caused by moving into
asbestos insulated buildings for long periods of time, Your age plays a huge role, and some
folks are more vulnerable towards the risk compared to others.
