What you need to know

Transplantation is one of the most remarkable success stories in the history of medicine. But despite continuing advances in medicine and technology, the need for organs and tissue is vastly greater than the number available for transplantation.

Transplantation gives hope to thousands of people with organ failure and provides many others with active and renewed lives

 ARE YOU A DONOR

Become a Registered Organ Donor

 

Why becoming a organ donor is so important

 

• Over 123,000 men, women and children are waiting for an internal organ transplant in the United States.
• 18 people die every day waiting for a transplant.
• 56% of the waiting list is made up of African, Hispanic, Asian and Native Americans.
• A single organ donor can save the lives of up to eight people.
• Organ donation is very rare - less than .03% of deaths result in organ donation.
• A single tissue donor can enhance the lives of more than 50 people – yes, 50!.

• Over 46,000 corneal transplants occur in the United States every year – it’s the most common type of transplant.
• Most people think they know about donation due to sensational stories in TV, movies and the news. Unfortunately, many people confuse fiction with fact, and sadly choose not to register because of these myths and misconceptions.
