Did you know that every day, 21 people die waiting for an organ transplant? There are over 120,000 people currently on the waiting list for a transplant. Every person has the ability to change these statistics by registering to be an organ donor.
According to Donate Life New England, more than 28,000 lives were saved because of organ donation! You have the power to save the life of another; all you have to do is check ‘yes.’ Help us celebrate Donate Life Month this April by registering to be an organ donor.
The UMass Memorial Medical Center organ transplant team is one of the largest programs in the region and provides the highest level of compassionate care throughout the entire transplant process. More information about transplant procedures can be found on the UMass Memorial website.
