Become an Organ Donor

You may not be surprised to hear that I have spent a fair share of time in various medical settings over the past fifteen months. Since my cancer diagnosis, surgery and now remission, Dr. Balaraman’s office has been one of my frequented stops. One thing I have learned along the way, through the passion of my oncologist, is the great need for organ donors in our state.

Participants will learn about baptism, communion, and growing in faith in a class led by Pastor Scott McKee and Director of WardKids, Justin Tucker. This class is intended for children in fourth and fifth grade, attending with their parent or other adults.
