Meet James....


"If they knew how simple it is....checking a box at the DMV....some people don't know that at any given time in America there's 115,000 people waiting for an organ transplant....there's like 10 people added to the waiting list every ten minutes and people die everyday. And if just one person agrees to be an organ/eyes/tissue donor, that can go to 75 different recipients. It's incredible.

"If people don't know if they're an organ donor and would like to, you can go to donatelife.net." James Jardine

"I would not have made it without Becky. Really everything else in your life falls away. You don't care about how much money you make. You don't care about if your house looks run down. You don't care about what kind of car you drive. You just have one target and that's your spouse and your kids....

"My family is the only thing that matters and that's what I'm getting through for." -James Jardine
