Documentary Reviews

I’m in tears right now. What a beautiful, touching and meaningful piece. It made me feel the desperation of wanting that "gift" for my dad and practically begging God for it. It is so important this is shared. People need to be informed and help their fellow man. So many on that list wait and wait and slowly deteriorate. I truly believe that if my dad would of been given the gift at an earlier stage of his liver disease he would of been strong enough and would have pulled thru. Can I share this?

Thanks again for sharing,
Diana Arcos

Najarian, MD, Regents Professor of Surgery, University of Minnesota I am in support of the documentary being filmed and marketed. It is essential to carry the message of the need for organ and tissue donation to the public. Currently, 19 people a day die waiting on a list for life-saving organs. Only 38% of people in the United States are registered organ donors.

Dennis Mahoney has put together an amazingly real documentary that tells the life and death stories of real people; diagnosis to post transplant recovery. These stories cannot be made up. There is no script for this very real situation where anything can and will happen.

This life changing film will be given away free to 350 stations nationwide, along with an engagement plan to reach high schools, colleges and DMV/drivers education classes. Please help us sponsor this mission-critical documentary.

Sincerely yours,
John S. Najarian, MD

Pruett, M.D. Professor of Surgery and Internal Medicine I support the documentary titled, "A Gift for Life" which is currently being produced. It is extremely important to make people aware of the need for organ and tissue donation. This documentary shows the life and death struggles that happen every day with people who need the gift of a life-saving transplant.

Today in our country, 19 people die each day waiting for a transplant. Only 38% of the people qualified in the United States are organ donors. Dennis Mahoney, the Producer and Director of the documentary, was transplanted at The University of Minnesota on June 18, 2008. Dennis helps bring real life stories to the public from footage taken at The University of Minnesota, The Mayo Clinic and New York Presbyterian Hospital.

This film will be given free to all 350 PBS stations nationwide, along with edited versions that will go to high schools, colleges and driver’s education classes. I support the message that runs through the film. We need more organs and tissue to help save lives.
