Every 10 minutes, a new patient is added to the national organ transplant waiting list. To raise awareness of this significant need, Donate Life America has designated April as National Donate Life Month. It’s a time to recognize the life-saving potential of that little pink dot on your driver’s license!
As of the publication of this article, over 118,000 people are waiting for an organ, with over 2,000 of those being kids. Signing up for organ, eye and tissue donation can mean saving the life of a patient with no other course for survival.
