• Everyday people need the gift of life. This can come in the form of a burn victim needing a skin graft, a child receiving a life changing cornea, an adult getting a lifesaving organ. A single registered organ donor can save up to eight lives and through organ and tissue donation that donor can enhance the lives of many more.
• You can help by registering to become an organ donor with your state and telling your family about your wishes.
• A living kidney donor can live a normal, healthy life with just one kidney. There are minimal side effects after a kidney donation. If a living kidney donor’s remaining kidney function declines or fails, they are placed at the top of the kidney wait list.
