Focused on five points of life: organs, tissues, marrow, platelets, and blood. Many nonprofit health organizations sponsor blood and marrow drives and organ/tissue sign-ups across the nation. National Donor Day was started in 1998 by the Saturn Corporation and its United Auto Workers partners with the support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and many nonprofit health organizations.
The First Successful Organ Transplant
Today, there are over 130,000 patients on the transplant waiting list with over 15 patients added daily.*
There has never been more than 14,750 donors a year
Reduce or preferably eliminate the shortage of organs for transplant by promoting change to US organ-donor policy to lift the ban on Financial Incentives (Fi) for living and deceased donors, provide patient and caregiver support through our transplant support group, and change government spending of research dollars to a more FAIR and equitable distribution for all diseases.
We challenge you to join our fight...
Help us save lives.
Please volunteer your time and talent,
We can't do it without you.
