Don Cherry promotes organ donation

The London Knights are raising awareness about organ donation with the help of Don Cherry.

Cherry will be at the Knights game Thursday against Kitchener.

He will be involved in the opening ceremony. The Kidney Foundation of Canada will also be on hand.

Cherry has been involved in donor awareness for some time. His daughter donated a kidney to his son, who had kidney failure, in the 1970s.

A couple of years ago, he donated a beloved vehicle to the kidney foundation which resells and recycles used vehicles.

There are more ways than ever to let your wishes be known about organ donation.

Yesterday I installed the latest operating system on my iPhone. It automatically included a health app. On that app, which allows emergency personnel to see any medical conditions or allergies you have in an emergency, you can click a box if you wish to donate organs.
