Be Sure You Are Registered
Every 10 minutes someone new is added to the national transplant waiting list. And with more than 100,000 people waiting for an organ transplant and 250,000 people waiting for tissue and cornea transplants— the need for registered organ donors is vital. Every day, 20 people die due to not receiving a life-saving transplant.
What if you needed a life-saving organ transplant, and one was available, would you accept it? Wouldn’t you want someone to give? You’re much more likely to need an organ transplant than be an organ donor.
