Johnson County Community College’s (JCCC’s)Diversity Department partners with the Midwest Transplant Network. Jill Johnson, JCCC bookstore clerk and organ donor mother is featured in this clip. Johnson’s son Amir died after suffering an asthma attack. The Johnson family allowed their son’s organs to be donated and as a result, three people received organs transplants from the youngster’s organs.
The Johnsons believe that Amir’s life is being honored through his organ donations to three organ recipients. Learn more about the Midwest Transplant Network Symposium in the Campus Ledger and watch Jill Johnson’s interview with Dr. Carmaletta Williams on the JCCC channel on YouTube.
