We speak about the distrust and myths around organ donation especially in the African-American community which has been abused by the medical establishment for many years.
After speaking with Ms. Jackson, I was joined in the studio by Qiana Crenshaw and Ashley Panahagahi students at Clark-Atlanta University who participated in the LifeLink Foundation Annual Battle for Life Campus Challenge with CAU won a year ago by registering 200 people to become organ donors.
"There's a sensitivity, even in 2018, about organ donation and transplantation and it needs to be diminished", she said. "Life is so short".
Ronnie Gavsie, president and CEO of the Trillium Gift of Life Network, called Boulet "an example to all Canadians".
Johnson says that while the registry has grown, more than 32-hundred people in MI are still on transplantation waiting lists.

Kulothungan Gunasekaran, lead author of the report and a senior staff physician at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. The patient was fine, with no lingering damage, but thunderclap headaches are not to be dismissed.
Good intentions are not enough to help the 4,500 people in Canada who now need a life-saving organ transplant, Gavsie said.
"I want everyone out there to put their name on the donor list because you can save so many people's lives if you just do that", an emotional Susan Procack told CTV Toronto.
Michelle Vanderhart, a mother of three in Fort MacCleod, Alta., said her two-year-old son Mason is one of the people for whom the decision to register could mean the difference between life and death.
Before his death, Boulet's family confirmed he was being kept on life support so doctors could remove his organs for donation, per his wishes.
Roman Catholic bishop Paul Mason has said plans for an opt-out system "undermine the concept of donation as a gift, and cross the line of what is a reasonable action for the state to take in relation to the individuals within it".
