» A BMV Donation Story

We know thousands of Ohioans have registered their donation decision through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.The Ohio Donor Registry is managed by the state of Ohio through the BMVs and each agency ask citizens if they would like to give the gift of life. September is National BMV Appreciation month, and a time to thank our partners for helping to save lives.   

It is not an exaggeration to recognize the Bureau of Motor Vehicles as a vital partner in the mission of saving and healing lives along with Lifebanc. We do not take that for granted and thank all BMV staff members. 

But for one staff member, Jim Stinson s BMV field representative the mission became personal when he  became a living kidney donor to his brother, Jerry Stinson a kidney transplant recipient. The brothers shared their experience and why donation is something we all should consider.
