Just read another wonderful piece about the kidney recipient/hockey goalie, David Ayres, who helped win the game for the Carolina Hurricanes last month. The fascinating stories have brought much-needed attention to kidney disease and transplant. In his honor, the Hurricanes sold No. 90 shirts, and part of the proceeds is going to the National Kidney Foundation in North Carolina.
Now Ayres is using his newfound fame to promote organ donation generally, with a different kind of shirt: a month-long campaign to support “Green Shirt Day” in Canada. The campaign honors the memory of Logan Boulet, a young Humboldt Broncos ice hockey player killed in a team bus crash in 2018. His organ donation prompted thousands of Canadians to register as organ donors. They call it the “Logan Boulet Effect.”
