Marshall shares his Rooted in Life story

Rooted in Life Podcast

Listen as Marshall talks about his transplant journey – and how he’s not missing a beat of his life thanks to his heroic donor.


After a heart attack, Janice of Delta Sigma Theta, lost her husband, Marvin Lewis Wright, Sr., an Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. member. Marvin became a tissue and cornea donor, healing dozens.

While he was a registered donor, Janice had many reservations about donation, knowing the historically adverse relationship between the Black community and the healthcare industry. However, she honored her husband’s donation decision, and he healed many through his cornea and tissue donations. She is confident in the decision he made and is proud to know he helped so many through his untimely death.
