Michael Wells is a liver transplant recipient of over sixteen and a half years. He is here today because someone and their family made the brave decision to become an organ donor.
Michael believes that positive thought breeds positive action. Ever since his liver transplant Michael says a prayer every night before he goes to sleep. He is very grateful to have been giving a second chance at life.
Michael volunteers for foundations and organizations such as Take Jake, Donor Alliance, American Transplant Foundation and the Chris Klug Foundation. We as a foundation are very lucky to have Michael as a volunteer with us. He is great at advocating for organ donation. He has made a point to speak with someone new every day of his life about organ donation. He wears numerous bracelets on his wrists that help spark up conversations with strangers about the importance of becoming an organ donor.
At the Chris Klug Foundation, we have dedicated an award called the Michael Wells Inspirational award that we give to different inspirational individuals in our community each year at our Summit For Life event. Michael is a true inspiration to all he encounters.
