6 reasons to register as an organ and tissue donor


1. You could save and heal up to 75 lives.

Just one donor has the potential to save eight lives through organ donation and restore up to 75 more through tissue donation. Organ donors can restore health and extend the lives of those whose heart, lungs, liver, pancreas, kidneys and/or small intestines fail. Tissue donors help by restoring sight, preventing limb amputation, healing burn victims, repairing bone, tendon and ligament damage after trauma and much more.   

2. More than 103,000* people in the United States are waiting for an organ transplant.

The need for organ donation in the United States and Arizona is high. For most, it is the difference of life or death. The generosity of your decision could help save lives and build a symbol of hope.

4. Major religious and spiritual groups support it.

No major religious or spiritual groups oppose organ and tissue donation, rather viewing it as a gift of life to a fellow human being.

5. Organ and tissue donation has a ripple effect.

The person on the receiving end of these gifts isn’t the only one whose life is impacted. These gifts provide healing to the family, friends and community of those waiting. A donation doesn’t just save a person, it saves a whole family 

6. It’s the generous decision.

Those who have made the decision to share life have made the most generous choice of all–one they might never see the impact of. It’s a gift that costs nothing too offer but has the power to transform lives.
