More than 100,000 people—including nearly 2,000 children—are in need of a life saving organ transplant. Join us throughout April as we celebrate National Donate Life Month. Recognize the generosity of those who have saved lives through organ, tissue, marrow and blood donation.

Become an Organ Donor

There are 3 easy steps to becoming an organ donor:

  1. Register with your state (Donate Life Georgia or Donate Life America).
  2. Designate “organ donor” on your driver’s license or identification card.
  3. Notify your family members about your decision to donate.

We recognize that a transplant affects the entire family, and we are committed to providing high quality care and support throughout the transplant process—we treat every child not just as a patient, but as a person.
