Become a Donor
Your chance of a lifetime…
Be an Organ Donor.
The most precious gift that you can give someone is life itself, and that’s exactly what you do when you become an organ and tissue donor. Unfortunately, not enough people make this life-giving choice, which means that more than 100,000 children and adults in America alone are forced to wait and hope for a chance to lead normal healthy lives. Thousands of children nationwide are on donor waiting lists and one donor can save up to 8 children in need of life-saving transplant surgery.
Give these sons and daughters, mothers and fathers a second chance at life through organ and tissue donation. It’s a beautiful way for you and your family to leave a legacy of love and life. Please consider making the family decision of a lifetime, and make it early. Become an organ donor today.
If you aren’t a donor already, all you have to do is make your wishes known to your family, and don’t let your age or a history of disease make you think that you can’t donate. In the event of your death, your family will be asked what your wishes were, so now is the time to discuss this important issue with them. Then go online and register to become an organ donor at organdonor.gov, or simply sign the donor card that’s a part of this downloadable brochure. It signifies your commitment to renewing the life and health of others in need.
