View "The Power of Two" Documentary
Everyone in the transplant community knows that it takes power to give the gift of life through organ donation, survive the wait and thrive after receiving a transplant. Twin sisters and double lung transplant recipients Ana Stenzel and Isa Stenzel Byrnes, and other members of the transplant community worldwide, show what power can do in the documentary film “The Power of Two.” Called “compelling” and “poetic” by the Wall Street Journal, and an “inspiring triumph” by Golden Globe® nominated actor Jack Black, this winner of ten film festival awards has entertained, educated and inspired audiences globally.
This short video was produced by Donate Life South Carolina to increase awareness about the need for more organ and tissue donors. It also gives information about the South Carolina Organ and Tissue Donor Registry.
