Nearly 1,000 Kentuckians are currently on waiting lists for life-saving organ transplants. Some of these patients will die waiting. Hundreds more are waiting for life-enhancing cornea and tissue transplants. You can give HOPE simply by being a registered donor!
While the number of donations and success rates have increased in recent years, so has medical science’s ability to save more lives with organ transplantation, as well as the need for donated organs & tissues. A single organ and tissue donor can help up to 50 people in need.
If you wish to give hope, please join the Registry today:
- Place your name on the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry by visiting www.donatelifeky.org.
- Kentucky drivers may also enter their names on the registry when they renew their driver’s license at their Circuit Clerk’s office.
- Tell your family of your decision.
- Share your decision on your Facebook Timeline – click “Life Events” – “Health & Wellness” – “Organ Donor”
