BE AN ORGAN/TISSUE DONOR AND HELP SAVE LIVES!

  • In Colorado and Wyoming, close to 1,800 people are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. Nationally, more than 99,000 people are waiting.

  • Volunteers should not rule themselves out as potential organ and tissue donors. They should designate their decision regardless of age or medical concerns.

  • Organs that can be donated are heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, pancreas and small intestine.

  • Tissues that can be donated are bone, tendons, ligaments, corneas, heart valves and skin.

  • A single organ and tissue donor can save up to 100 lives.

  • More than half of those waiting in our state need a kidney transplant…

  • Seniors and minorities account for more than 60% of those on the National Transplant Waiting List.

  • All major religions support organ, eye and tissue donation as an unselfish act of charity.
