At Children’s, we have given the gift of life to more than 1,500 children through organ transplants. But, there are still more young lives to be saved.
Currently, more than 116,000 people in the U.S.—including nearly 2,000 children—are in need of a lifesaving organ transplant. Many people have generosity saved others’ lives through organ, tissue, marrow and blood donation.
Become an organ donor
There are 3 easy steps to becoming an organ donor:
