Brenda Beers
Donate Life Ambassador

Brenda Beers is retired after more than 30 years in the newspaper industry as a budget manager and executive assistant. Currently, she is an active volunteer for the cause of organ, eye and tissue donation as her husband John received a kidney transplant in August 2005 from a deceased donor. Brenda began volunteering for OneLegacy, the organ recovery organization for the greater Los Angeles area, in 2007 as a way to give back and share her family’s story of donation and transplantation. In her volunteer role, she serves as a volunteer Ambassador to local hospitals, DMV field offices, and the city of Hemet, California, where she resides. John passed away in May of 2013, seven and a half years after receiving the gift of life. John and Brenda have three sons and two granddaughters. Brenda attended the University of Montana.
