The Chance to Heal Others
One tissue donor can save or improve the quality of life for more than 100 patients.
The most commonly donated tissues include: corneas, heart valves, skin, veins, bone and tendons.
How Tissue Helps
Donated tissue is used in many surgical situations on a daily basis, benefitting those with serious or life-threatening medical needs. Patients with severe burns, athletes with torn ligaments or tendons, military personnel recovering from traumatic injuries – these people and more can be healed through the gift of tissue donation.
Anyone over the age of 16, regardless of age or health, can register to be donor.
