A Simple Way to Save a Life

Posted: Updated:

Would you believe us if we said that three seconds can save a life?

When you become an organ donor, it's possible.

A benefit at Buffalo Wild Wings Friday night recruited people to learn more about becoming a donor, and to sign up.

It was National Blue and Green Day, in honor of organ donation awareness.

One example of the true gift of organ donation is Brittany Grimm from Fairview.

She had a heart transplant when she was 11 years old, and now she's an advocate for the cause that saved her life.

"You can save eight people's lives with a transplant, so I don't understand when some people are like 'oh I'm not a donor,'" said Grimm. "They have misconceptions about it and we clear those up and they normally become donors... people aren't educated about it."
