If offered an opportunity to save a life, would you? 90% of Americans say “yes” to organ donation, yet only a few more than 30% of Florida’s population has signed up on our state organ and tissue donor registry.
April is Donate Life Month, now is the time for those who have not yet done so to sign up on Florida’s donor registry online by visiting www.DonateLifeFlorida.org, or when getting or renewing their driver license.
One organ donor can save the lives of eight people, and impact nearly 50 more through tissue donation. There are more than 110,000 people waiting nationally for a life-saving transplant – more than 4,000 of whom are our friends and neighbors in Florida – and each of us has an opportunity to become a hero every time we say “yes” to organ and tissue donation.
