The solution is – people.  The greatest benefit of organ donation is knowing that you’re saving a life. That life might be your spouse, child, parent, brother or sister, a close friend, or a stranger in need. An organ donor is truly a lifesaver.

  • Over 120,000 people in the United States are waiting for life-saving transplants, of that figure; over 90,000 are waiting for a kidney.
  • Every 18 minutes another name is added to the transplant list.
  • Every 24 hours, eight people die because suitable organs are not available.
