An infant organ donor

Joseph Quiambao was only 4 months old when he saved the lives of two infant girls. In 1998, after a tragic accident, Quiambao’s heart was given to a baby girl in Colorado, and his liver went to another little girl in California.

Bernadette Tohtsoni, (Joseph’s mother) and her son, Reggie, will be creating a floragraph—a portrait made of flowers—tonight at the Queen of Heaven Church (5311 Phoenix NE) at 7 p.m. The image will be among 60 on a float in this year’s Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif.

The public is invited to hear Bernadette and Reggie talk about organ donation. Two transplant recipients will be on hand to discuss what it was like to receive a life-saving organ transplant, says Maria Sanders of New Mexico Donor Services. “We’ll also be learning the myths and misconceptions about organ donation.”

Computers will be set up so people can go to nmdonor.org to find out if they’re already registered as organ donors. You can also register as a donor through the site.

Council Watch

Give of Yourself

City councilors urged us to share our hearts, lungs, livers, kidneys and other body parts—and not just when our time on planet Earth is up. Councilor Dan Lewis introduced a proclamation supporting Donate Life, an organ donation organization. This is a family issue for Lewis, who gave a kidney to his brother. Tim Lewis spoke at the meeting along with a handful of other organ recipients. One woman talked about the miracle of her double lung transplant. Another woman said she received a heart and a new life from an 11-year old. There are around 960,000 people who’ve signed up to be organ donors in the state, though the population is about 1.9 million.
