ONE8FIFTY

ONE8FIFTY ONE donor can provide life saving organs for 8 people and dramatically impact at least FIFTY lives through donor tissue. ONE8FIFTY’s intent is to increase the number of registered organ donors in New York State through community awareness and creating a call to action for New York State residents to become registered organ donors.
(5)

The nonprofit was founded by Tom Jasinski, a double transplant recipient, and born as a result of being told that his wait for a lifesaving kidney could have taken as long as ten years. During nearly two years on dialysis, Tom researched everything he could about transplant. He was concerned that he might be one of the 22 people who die each day while waiting for organs that do not come. He learned that New York State was near the bottom in the number of registered donors per capita and that there are currently over 10,000 New York State residents waiting for life saving organs. With your help we can increase the New York State registry and save lives! We intend to be the driving force to change donor INTENT to donor CONSENT. Help us be the change!

So very thankful for reaching my 8th anniversary of my kidney transplant or as transplant patients say, "my kidney birthday"! I am so lucky to have had a perfect match via a living donor. To all those that wait for transplant, know that you too will get to the other side. I started ONE8FIFTY to help all of those in need of transplant, if you are in need of guidance or need someone to speak with please reach out to me. I'm happy to help in any way I can. Last but certainly not least, thank you to all my family and friends that helped get Ginny and I through our incredible journey! Everyone please be safe and wear your masks. Being a transplant patient, I have NO IMMUNE SYSTEM and there are so many people out there that need that thoughtful consideration.

Well, as you all know 2020 has not been a normal year for any of us. Today was to have been our 5th Anniversary Benefit for Organ Donation. Just like many other non-profits this major fund raising event has been postponed until we are allowed to gather in a group format. We continue our life saving mission. We are currently assisting families that have loved ones waiting for kidneys; lungs and heart. We will be educating high school students at Nardin Academy in their aging death and dying classes. We are grateful for your past support and hope you will consider a donation until we meet face to face. For people like me, with NO immune system, please wear face masks. Social distance and stay safe!

Six years ago today I had my pancreas transplant and no longer was diabetic for the first time in nearly 34 years. Eight months earlier I received my kidney transplant. I will never be able to describe how grateful I am. I am thankful that we live in a time where these things are possible. I hope my efforts with ONE8FIFTY will assist all those now facing transplant, giving hope by knowing just like me, you can endure and get to the other side of transplant.
