Donors are superstars!


Did you know that April is National Donate Life Month? This annual recognition was established by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations in 2003. Through the efforts of Donate Life affiliated organizations, health care partners, participating community organizations and people like you, we aim to encourage everyone to register as organ and tissue donors and to honor those who have saved and healed lives through the gift of donation.

This year, it is Donor Network of Arizona (DNA)’s goal to have …

1000 Total Registrations & Affirmations

A gentle Giant

“Darrell was a tall, gentle giant,” says donor wife, Michelle Yoon. Darrell Boito loved to fix things, including cars, and shared special moments with their young daughter when she tagged along. He enjoyed watching baseball—his favorite team being the Arizona Diamondbacks—and family outings to the zoo and park.

In June 2023, Boito passed away after a brain aneurysm. 

He was able to donate his liver, heart, kidneys and corneas. His passing left the family devastated, but they are thankful for the last Father’s Day weekend they spent together.

The family also finds comfort in knowing that their loved one helped others after his passing. Yoon can picture Boito saying, “That’s pretty cool!” if he could see how many lives he saved and healed.

National Donate Life Month is all about honoring selfless donors like Boito.

“If you are able to help through donation, please don’t hesitate and register to be a donor!” Yoon says.
