Manchester’s Samantha Jameson was recently honored by Life Center as their Young Professional of the Year for 2017.
Life Center is a non-profit organ donation organization and Jameson, who is a double lung transplant recipient, is a part of the Life Center public education team. She makes numerous appearances at high schools where she talks to the kids about organ donations and tries to answer the many questions they have.
The organization also holds several events throughout the year to help raise awareness for organ donation.
Jameson received her award on Nov. 10 at the “Bourbon and Bow Tie Bash” fundraising event for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The event welcomed 1,500 guests to the Duek Energy Center in Cincinnati and raised $210,000.
