Billboards Ask For Organ Donors

10-21-04 - The family of a girl suffering from Cystic Fibrosis is hoping two billboards along I-35 could save her life. The Parker family of Marietta placed two billboards near Purcell and Norman asking for people to commit to donating lungs for Lisa Parker.

The 27-year-old suffers from the genetic disease that affects the respiratory and digestive systems. Most of the time, she's breathing with only 20 to 30 percent of her lung capacity. She's on a waiting list for a lung transplant. But family members hope the billboard, shown in the above photo, encourages people to name Lisa as a recipient, in case the donor is ever in an accident.
