American Horror Story actor Ben Woolfe chose to be an organ donor before his accident last week. Ben was sideswiped in the head by an SUV while walking in Hollywood last Thursday at 9pm. The driver was not charged in the incident as this was not a hit and run and Ben was allegedly jaywalking.
Ben’s family donated his organs through a non-profit organization, One Legacy, and his generous decision helped to save three lives. Three women received Ben’s liver and two kidneys.
Knowing Ben personally, he was a kind, sweet and a generous person in life. He has taught us all an important lesson about organ donation. And he would be very happy to know that three women were saved through his generous efforts.
To follow Ben’s good example and to sign up to be an organ donor, simply:
Register with your state’s Organ Donor Registry.
Select the word “yes” to organ donation when you apply for your driver’s license.
Sign a donor card, if available.
