National Donate Life Month

April 2, 2013

April is National Donate Life Month, a time to encourage others to become organ donors. Registering as an organ donor is simple. Be a hero by signing up to save lives.

Right now, more than 117,700 Americans are awaiting a lifesaving transplant. However, last year, only about 28,000 patients received transplants. As you can see, there is a major shortage of organ donors in our country. Please take this time to consider becoming an organ donor, and also take a moment to share your decision with family and friends. You never know who may step up to make the same decision because of your example.

This year, NFT is celebrating its 30th anniversary of serving transplant patients. We're celebrating our anniversary and Donate Life Month in a fun way with an online scavenger hunt! You can join the fun and maybe even win a prize. Click here to read all about this exciting opportunity!
