Myth 5: There is an age limit for organ donation.
Fact: There is no age limit for donation or to sign up. Organs and tissue can come from people of all ages. According to the National Institutes of Health, in 2021, one out of every three people who donated organs was over the age of 50. And as of 2021, the oldest organ donor in the United States was 92. You’re never too old or too young to make a difference.
