Blogging daily in April in recognition of National Donate Life Month. Please register as an organ donor and help to raise awareness about this lifesaving gift.

Here’s your Friday Fact about organ donation: In the United States, 95 percent of the population supports organ and tissue donation yet less than 50 percent have taken the necessary steps to make their wishes known. In the meantime, 22 people die daily in the U.S. while waiting for an organ transplant.  If you are one of those who intend to sign up but haven’t gotten around to it yet, perhaps this will motivate you: Imagine 22 people dying in your life today who might be saved by an organ transplant; then imagine another 22 tomorrow. What are you waiting for?
