Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus and Ellen Dunn, October’s Citizen of the Month. Ellen is the coordinator of the Donate Life Group of Orange County and works as an advocate for LiveOnNY. She is a double lung transplant recipient whose surgery in 2008 saved her life. “Ellen has been a wonderful spokesperson for organ donation in Orange County,” Neuhaus said. “She cares deeply about the issue and has raised awareness about it on a variety of platforms. Ellen has her own inspirational story to share about organ donation and I’m proud to recognize her for all of her hard work and contributions.”
Meetings of the Donate Life Group of Orange County are held at 7:00 p.m. the fourth Thursday of every month at the Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown, NY, conference room #1 on the ground floor (see map and directions).
Anyone with an interest in organ donation and transplantation is welcome to attend.
