Organ donor film draws small crowd

By Jake Hibbard, Staff Writer

Hoping to convince more U students to become organ donors, Mark Taylor, a first-year graduate student in economics, showed a film about organ donation in the OSH auditorium Thursday8212;however, few people attended the event.

The film followed Pat Spurgeon, a drummer in an indie rock band, who found the family of the person who donated a kidney to him. One purpose of the film, “D Tour,” is to encourage more students to sign up as donors by showcasing its benefits.

Taylor said he was happy with the event, though only about 10 people attended the screening.

“I think it went well,” Taylor said, adding that he was pleased with the reception of the people who did attend.

One student in attendance was Adam Wright, a senior in behavior science and health.

“I thought (the movie) was very tastefully done,” Wright said. “I had a friend that had a kidney transplant… and it was touching to see (the two) families interact.”

It really showed that one family’s loss can be transformed into another family’s gain, he said.
