You are created for something extraordinary: News coverage from last night

Here are a few links to some of the coverage.

Jerran says in the NBC piece, “I believe I was created for something extraordinary. I believe we all are.”

Our hope is that it inspires people to become living donors, or do any little extraordinary thing they can today.
