Organ donor registry challenge set by WSU students
In memory of Rebecca Joy Butler, the daughter of WSU School of Business associate professor Timothy Butler and his wife, Beverly, the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority of Wayne State University hosts an organ donor registration challenge through Feb. 26.
The Grosse Pointe Woods resident and 2009 Grosse Pointe North High School graduate was pursuing a marketing degree at WSU when diagnosed with a rare lung disease. While waiting for a transplant, she learned 100,000 people were also awaiting organs and made it her mission to start a donor registry at WSU. She died in May 2011, still waiting for a lung.
