Jason McCluney's path to becoming a two-time organ donor started with a conversation. While chatting with a friend about driving past someone stranded on the side of the freeway, he mentioned that his first thought in that kind of situation was always the same: I should stop and help.

But other voices would instantly bubble up in his mind: They'll be fine. Help is on the way. It's dangerous to pull over. So he'd continue with his drive, and his life.

His friend laid down a challenge: Listen to the first voice. "He said the first voice is spiritual in nature, and anything after that is ego or selfishness," Jason recalls.

That conversation stayed with Jason for years. His friend's advice came back to him whenever the topic of organ donation came up. And when his daughter began working on organ donations through her job as an ICU nurse, the topic was on his mind more and more.
