You can make a difference!
In the United States, April is celebrated as Donate Life Month, a month dedicated to raising awareness on the need for registered organ donors. Countless COTA families are waiting and hoping to receive a call just like the one that Katelyn had received, which ended up giving her a second chance at life. Donate Life America is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to increasing the number of donated organs to help save and heal the lives of those in need. For those who are interested in making contributions or registering to become organ donors, www.donatelife.net is the website to turn to. More than 95% of Americans are in favor of becoming donors; however, only 56% are registered. You can help to bridge this gap by sharing.
1 person is added to the waiting list every 10 minutes.
22 people pass away on a daily basis while waiting for an organ transplant.
Just 1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives.
