Let’s Talk about Organ Donation
It’s not a casual conversation, but organ donation is something we should all talk about - because the need for organ donors is very real.
Consider these statistics from the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network:
More than 100,000 people are on the national transplant waiting list.
Every 9 minutes another person is added to the transplant waiting list.
17 people die each day waiting for an organ transplant.
Every donor can save 8 lives and improve the lives of 75 more.
In the Upper Midwest, an estimated 3,400 people are waiting for a transplant at any given time.
