Connecting lives through organ and tissue donation relies on the generosity of donors and their families. It is the partnership of many people and organizations that helps us link these gifts with the people in our communities who are in need.
Donation often begins with a decision – the decision to save a life. Our community, state and hospital partners help us educate the public about the importance of donation and the power of their decision. Our healthcare partners help us facilitate the giving of these gifts from one person to another, completing the circle of donation and transplantation and caring for the people in our communities.
More than 116,000 men, women and children currently await lifesaving organ transplants. Tens of thousands more benefit from a life-enhancing tissue or cornea transplant each year.
