National Donor Day is Today

What better way to show our love on Valentine’s Day than to share the gift of life!

Did you know:

  • Over 100,000 people are waiting for an organ?
  • 18 people will die each day waiting for an organ?
  • 1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives?

Organ transplant is the treatment of choice for patients with end-stage organ disease. The fact is that almost anyone can sign up to be an organ donor.   Patients can receive transplants from deceased donors, but may also receive organs from living donors. When you decide to become a living donor you are offering another person a new beginning and when you sign up to become a donor after you are deceased, you offer a final act of love and generosity toward others.

Visit our organ donors page for more information about giving or receiving an organ transplant at IU Health.
