McGovern Foundation believes in Organ Donation.

Today, more than 115,000 children and adults await life-saving organ transplants in the United States. More than 4,000 of them are in Florida alone. You can make a difference in their lives by becoming an organ, tissue and eye donor. 

My mother, Edna Mae was an heart recipient, unfortunately she passed away during the surgery. She believed in organ donation long before she knew she would need a new heart, so upon her death, we knew her wishes. She helped at least 3 different families with her gift of life.

Our daughter, Edna Mae was an organ donor at the age of 19 months. She helped 4 different families with the gift of life.
