Organ Donation Campaign on College Campuses

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Wayne State University marketing student Rebecca Joy Butler was only 20 years old when her life was cut short by illness. After waiting in vain for a lung transplant, she died in May 2011. In honor of her life, Rebecca's parents, Beverly and Tim Butler, an associate business professor, are leading the 2012 WSU Gift of Life Campus Challenge to increase organ donations. Last year, School of Medicine students coordinated a smaller challenge. This year, Tim Butler is serving as a faculty advisor of sorts for the statewide campus campaign.

Tim and Beverly Butler join Craig to talk about the push to give the Gift of Life on college campuses. They're hoping a friendly competition among colleges will energize the campaign.
