January 12, 1987

Organ donor advocates, including families who received help from the Reagans in seeking transplants for their ailing children, have attacked President Reagan's 1988 budget because it eliminates money for a new computerized national network to locate organs, and would shut down the federal Office of Organ Transplantation, Sen. Albert Gore Jr. (D-Tenn.) said. "The White House cannot respond on a case-by-case basis to every person that comes along. What you need is a national system," said Charles Fiske of Bridgewater, Mass., whose daughter, Jamie, was saved by a liver transplant in 1982.
