THANK YOU SO MUCH (yes, I’m shouting!) for posting this information. This has affected my family directly, and each donor can make a difference in so many lives!

Wow, the waiting list is depressing long, so sad.

It really is, this is why organ donation is something I talk about a few times a year at least.

I am an organ donor. I have heard stories of families of organ donors having to pay a lot of money for the procedure , I always wondered if this was true. I did not know so many people died a day waiting for an organ.

There are so many misconceptions about organ donations – that is why I really liked this infographic. My mom, uncle, and a close family friend have all been recipients of donated items and I am very thankful for it!

I cannot believe how fast the waiting list is growing! I wonder why there is so much of a demand for organs now vs 20 years ago.
