Some statistic: There is at this moment 119,000 men, women and children on the national transplant waiting list. 30,970 transplants were performed in 2015. 22 people die each day waiting for a transplant.
Why do you need to register: 95% of U.S. adults support organ donation but only 48% are actually signed up as donors. Every 10 minutes, another person is added to the waiting list. Only 3 in 1,000 people die in a way that allows for organ donation.
