By proclamation, Gov. John Hickenlooper recently established June 13th each year as 'Living Donor Day' in Colorado.
The proclamation says the number of people on the organ transplant waiting list in Colorado has increased by 50% over the past 10 years, compared to the national rate of 25.6%. Molly Wright's wait was short, compared to most; she made it off Colorado's organ transplant waiting list when a stranger volunteered to donate a kidney. Holly Ross, a stranger, gave hers in 2015.
