Additionally, the Proclamation commends the decision of the Carney family, a DuPage County family whose son Jake tragically lost his life in a car accident, for courageously choosing to donate his liver, pancreas and kidneys to two people who desperately needed them.

The Carney's story has inspired DuPage County municipalities to join Gift of Hope to help increase donation awareness by participating in the Workplace Partners campaign and playing an active role in saving and enhancing the lives of others.
