Matthew's Story

On March 24th of 2018, Matthew Wright was driving down the road when a truck struck his car. He was taken to the hospital. As much as the dedicated medical team tried, their efforts in perform  life-saving procedures were unsuccessful.  Matthew was a registered organ donor and he had LET PEOPLE KNOW. Even with his passing, Matthew showed others deep kindness. He was able to  save four people’s lives  and give two people the gift of sight.


As of July 2019, here were over 113,000 men, women, and children on the national transplant waiting list. Twenty people die each day waiting for a transplant, and every 10 minutes another person is added to the waiting list.  95% of U.S. adults support organ donation, but only 58% are actually signed up as donors.  One person can donate up to eight lifesaving organs.  

Matthew Wright had a conversation with his parents about his wish to be an organ donor. When his accident left him brain dead, Matthew's parents already knew his wishes.  Because he LET PEOPLE KNOW, Matthew saved four lives and gave two people the gift of sight.  One of the lives he saved was 9-year old Landyn Ozuna Valdez.  


Please register to be an organ donor. And, more importantly, LET PEOPLE KNOW! Help give people, like Landyn, a second chance at life.
