Organ Donation

Learn More About Organ Donation

The need for organ donors has never been greater. In the United States, there are more than 120,000 people currently in need of organ transplants. And each year, thousands of people die while waiting for a transplant because no suitable donor can be found for them. You have the power to change that.

By registering as an organ donor, one person may save the lives of up to eight people. Anyone can indicate their desire to be a donor, regardless of age or medical history. Becoming an organ, tissue or eye donor is an incredible and noble gift, because you can give someone a second chance at life.
