To Our Central and South Texas Friends:

The Texas Organ Sharing Alliance (TOSA) is delighted to be celebrating 35 years of serving the Central and South Texas communities!

Through the years many of us have joined together in our efforts to increase donation. We greatly appreciate the partnerships that have been developed. These partnerships have enabled us to advance the practice of organ donation, which have extended the lives of so many on our organ transplant waiting lists.

Today, we look forward to a renewed commitment to provide every individual with the opportunity to becoming an organ, eye and tissue donor through registering to become a donor with the Donate Life Texas registry. We take great pride in our community and value the compassion our citizens have in contributing to a better quality of life to those less fortunate. Organ donation is one more very important way to express that compassion.

The level of confidence in and intention towards donating has increased. Through our community initiatives and partnerships we will continue to create a more "donation friendly" and therefore a healthier society.

Thank you in advance for your continued interest and support — should you have any questions, please contact Esmeralda "Mela" Perez, TOSA Manager of Communications and Community Development at 210.618.5052 or by email
