Gregory Welsh, a 50 year old father of one daughter, has experienced the lifesaving benefits of donation first hand. After a fatal car accident in 1996, Gregory made the decision to donate his wife’s eyes, tissues and organs. Fifteen years later his generosity came full circle when on May 18, 2011, four months after suffering a heart attack that made him reliant on an artificial heart, Gregory received a heart transplant. He has since become an advocate and voice for donation. He is currently employed by Gervasio, & Assoc., Inc, an engineering consulting firm. Past experiences include business ownership and technological expertise in the computer field. Besides working full time, organ donation awareness has become a full time passion. Gregory brings personal experiences and dedication to the mission of the New Life Board.
