Meade County: Gifting Hope This Holiday Season

Submitted Article


For many Kentuckians, the holiday season is bittersweet. Families across the commonwealth are praying for a gift that cannot be found wrapped under the tree – the gift of life. The Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust For Life encourages everyone to spread holiday cheer by joining the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

Families like Eden’s, a liver recipient from Harrison County, will make new memories this year because of a generous donor family. Eden was born with a liver disease and was extremely sick. Her family was told that a liver transplant was their only option. “Because of Eden’s transplant, we can do normal things as a family without having to run back and forth to the hospital,” said Ashley, Eden’s mom. Knowing that time with her is priceless, Eden is now a special part of holiday memories that will last a lifetime!

“This year 60,000 Kentuckians have joined us in our mission to save lives through organ donation. Time with those we love is priceless; give the gift of health and hope by saying ‘yes’ to joining the registry!” says Ellen Lindsey, Meade County Circuit Court Clerk.

With nearly 1,000 Kentuckians waiting on a transplant this holiday season, the need is great. Everyone can register online as a donor to bring hope to those, like Eden, who are in need.

To join the TFL mission, you may join the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry in the following ways:

· Online 24/7 at RegisterMe.org

· Driver’s License Renewals: Check with your local Circuit Court Clerk and KYTC office to confirm renewal processes by visitinghttps://bit.ly/driverlicenseky.
