Every day, 21 people in the United States die while waiting for an organ transplant. For people whose organs are failing because of disease or injury, donated organs and tissue may offer the gift of hope. Everyone who signs up to be a donor is pledging to give more than their organs. They are giving recipients a second chance to live their lives to the fullest.
In partnership with UPMC Transplant Services, Donate Life America, and the Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE) we celebrate the gift of life and encourage others to register as organ donors and to give others a second chance at life.
