Right now, more than 120,000 Americans are on a waiting list to receive a life-saving transplant. And every 10 minutes, someone new is added to that list. With demand for healthy organs far exceeding supply, more donors are needed to help lower the average of 22 people dying each day while awaiting a transplant.
Any healthy person can choose to become a living donor by donating a kidney, a lung or part of their liver. You can sign up for organ donation at lifeshareregistry.org or call 800-826-LIFE for an organ donor registration card to be mailed to you.
