Save a life
Placeholder Image
Dear Editor, If offered an opportunity to save a life, would you? Ninety percent of Americans say “yes” to organ donation, yet only a few more than 37 percent of Georgia’s population has signed up on our state organ and tissue donor registry.
April is Donate Life Month, and I encourage those who have not yet done so to sign up on Georgia’s donor registry online by visiting, or when getting or renewing their driver license.
One organ donor can save the lives of eight people, and impact nearly 50 more through tissue donation. There are more than 106,000 people waiting nationally for a life-saving transplant – more than 3,000 of whom are our friends and neighbors in Georgia - and each of us has an opportunity to become a hero every time we say “yes” to organ and tissue donation. Contact LifeLink of Georgia for more information at 800-544-6667/706-854-0333.
