The Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) is an independent, not-for-profit organ and tissue recovery agency. LOPA's Core Purpose is Making Life Happen. We save and heal lives through organ and tissue donation.
At 6 months old, LSU fan John Clarke saved Auburn fan Davis Boswell through the gift of organ donation. Davis may be an Auburn Tiger fan, but he has the heart of an LSU Tiger! For the 3rd year, the Perry and Boswell families met at the rivalry game between Auburn and LSU. They celebrate the legacy of John Clarke and the life of Davis Boswell. John Clark's dad Jonathan says it best, "The rivalry is great for the game, but the connection they have with Auburn and the Boswell's is something special." #heartofatiger #johnclarkeperryfoundation #makinglifehappen
