Organ donation. Most people will either ignore this issue or not face it. There are about 19.5 million New Yorkers and yet only 11% of the state is signed up to donate. There are over 105,000 people on the waiting list. The supply just isn’t meeting the demand.
I started this website for two main reasons. I want to inform people, answer questions, and get the word out about organ donation. Secondly, I started this website for myself and for all the transplant recipients, donor families, and transplant patients waiting on the list for an organ. I feel that this website is a support route and an acknowledgement to all those people enduring this process.

Sharing your decision to be an organ and tissue donor is as important as making the decision itself. At the time of your death, your family may be asked about donation. Sharing your decision with your family now will prevent confusion or uncertainty about your wishes later; Carrying out your wishes to save other lives can bring your family members great comfort in their time of grief.
