How do I register as an organ donor?
To become an organ donor, you need to register with the appropriate registry or indicate your intentions formally, depending on where you live.
More than 114,000 people in the United States and millions more around the globe are waiting for the heart, kidney or liver transplant that will save their lives. Many of those people—an average of 18 people per day—will die waiting, because there simply aren’t enough organ donors to meet the need. Medical experts believe that broader awareness about organ donation could go a long way toward solving this crisis.With the addition of “organ donor” to the Life Events section of Timeline, you can state your intention to become an organ donor, and share your story about when, where or why you decided to become a donor. If you are not officially registered as an organ donor, sign up with the appropriate registry.
Please consider signing up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor today. You can be the difference in someone's life!
