Illinois Secretary of State launches new organ donor campaign

Posted:
CHICAGO (WREX) -

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White has launched a new campaign to encourage organ and tissue donation, featuring a very special advocate.

The ad features Vikki Tulcus, who worked for the tissue donor program. Tulcus was waiting for a kidney when she died in February. White says Tulcus became a donor herself, donating her corneas so two others can see.

"You may not have a need today, you may not have a need tomorrow, but sometime during your lifetime, you or someone you may know or one of your loved ones, you want to make sure that when that moment arrives, that there will be organs available," White said.

You can register as a donor at any driver services facility or at lifegoeson.com.
