Become an Organ Donor

Organ Donation

There are close to 115,000 patients waiting for an organ. Less than 30,000 patients are transplanted each year. Our need for organs is growing at a much faster rate than our supply of organs. This organ shortage increases Medicare costs, increases patient wait time, and worsens the prognosis of end stage renal disease patients waiting for a kidney.
