Self-Advocate Spotlight
NDSS has been proud to work with advocates in states across the country to pass non-discrimination in organ transplantation legislation. 

Meet Sawyer and his mom Lauren! Sawyer Shelor has inspired “Sawyer’s Law"- Virginia's bill that would help prevent people with disabilities from being denied life-saving organ transplants. 

Sawyer is proving that you are never too young to advocate!
