EDISON -

A New Jersey mother who lost her son is urging others to become organ and tissue donors.

Sally Yabra was at the Skylark Diner in Edison Thursday signing up organ donors. Her son Jonathan once worked here. 

He died when he was 19 and his tissues were donated.

Yabra says she found out that 28 people's lives were changed because of her son’s donations.

"He's all over the country. Making a difference in somebody else's life,” she says.

Information about becoming an organ and tissue donor can be found on the New Jersey Sharing Network website.
