Donor, Recipient and Individual Waiting for Transplant Join Together at Saint Barnabas Medical Center


LIVINGSTON – April 12, 2013  – Retired Superior Court Judge F. Michael Giles of West Orange will remember his son, Dr. Randall Marc Giles, at a “Donate Life” flag ceremony to mark Donate Life Month.

Dr. Giles, a trauma surgeon, died from an aneurysm at the age of 43 and his organs saved the lives of several other people, including a man who received a life-saving lung transplant.

Judge Giles will join hospital officials, doctors, nurses and others who want to give hope to those waiting for life-saving transplants and to honor the legacy of donors and to support their families. Kathleen Davis, 51 year-old mother, will be on hand to represent the thousands of people currently waiting for a transplant. Ms. Davis has polycystic kidney disease as do two of her siblings. She has been on the transplant list for four years and is hoping to avoid dialysis.
