The need for increased education on organ and tissue donation and donor designation is critical in our mission to save lives. Thousands of lives are saved every year, but thousands more continue to wait. On average, 18 lives are lost every day because there was no organ available for transplant.
MTN aims to partner with the media to help educate the community on the value of organ donation, as well as to dispel misconceptions about organ donation. Please view our statistics page for accurate facts.
Media professionals can help increase education on donation by sharing stories involving local resources, including donor families, recipients and professionals within the field of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.
For more information please contact Brooke Connell, MTN Media Relations, at 913-261-6185. If this is an urgent request, please call 913-375-5757.
An average of 18 people per day (or 6,570 per year) die due to a lack of available organs for transplant.
