WRTC would like to give a big, warm welcome to the new Chair of the Donor Family Advocacy Council, Ms. Alisa Hughley.
Alisa started volunteering with WRTC and Donate Life in 2010, 13 years after her brother Carey died in a random act of violence. Through organ donation, Carey transformed 4 lives, two of which were members of Alisa’s family church.
Today, Alisa not only works closely with WRTC, but is a member of The Links, Incorporated which sponsors an organ, eye and bone marrow donation awareness program called Linkages to Life.
As Chair, Alisa will represent WRTC at community events, act as a spokesperson to the media, and lead the council on advising WRTC on its aftercare programs for donor families during their grief journey.
Already, in her short time as Chair, Alisa has been the spokesperson for Donate Life’s Black History Month campaign where she told the story of her brother’s donation, encouraging the African American community to educate themselves on the facts regarding organ, eye and tissue donation.
Alisa will continue in her role through 2020.
