Organ Donors in Arizona Set Record


Record-breaking generosity

Arizonans have once again proven their extraordinary generosity, setting a new record for organ donation in the state. Forty-five organ donors offered the gift of life in May 2024, the most in a single month in the history of Donor Network of Arizona (DNA). This incredible display of sharing life translates to 101 lives saved through the successful transplant of 118 organs.

“A record number of 45 heroes is made possible first by the generosity of Arizonans in their most tragic moment—choosing life, altruism and the human endeavor that is donation,” says Abdulwahab Al-Saleh, MSN RN CPTC, director of the Donor Optimization department at DNA. “Organizationally it represents the strength we have in unity with our team, organ donors and their families. We’re our best when we work together to maximize the gift of life.”

This record beats July 2023 data when Arizona had 39 organ donors, and it demonstrates the ongoing commitment of DNA to save lives through organ donation, made possible by donors and their families.

In fact, DNA has seen steady growth since its inception in 1986. Organ donation has increased by 180% over the past 15 years—121% increase in the last decade alone.
