Nationally, more than 100,000 people are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Sadly, because the need is not met, nearly 20 people die each day waiting. But you can make a difference.
Anyone should consider themselves a donor. There are no age limits, no physical or medical requirements, no waiting periods, and no tests. All you need is the will to save a life and a moment of your time to register.
Only 44% of eligible Tennesseans are registered donors – considerably below the national average of 54%. Imagine how many lives could be saved if we close the registration gap in Tennessee.
