April is National Donate Life Month. Why you should consider becoming an organ, eye, and tissue donor: currently, there are nearly 114,000 individuals awaiting the gift of a lifesaving organ transplant in the U.S. Nationally, 22 people die each day while waiting. In Minnesota and North and South Dakota, 400 people are waiting for a gift of life.
Now the good news: one donor can heal as many as 75 others. Please consider celebrating Donate Life Month by taking two minutes to register as a donor. It’s easy to sign up! Just check the “organ donor” box when renewing your drivers, fishing or hunting license. You can also go to registerme.org.
