LifeShare Celebrates National Donate Life Month - Encourages
Oklahomans to Register as Donors
Celebrated in April each year, Donate Life Month features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those who have saved lives through the gift of donation.
This year, we are encouraging everyone to join us as we Let Hope Rise! Hot air balloons rise majestically into the sky and bring wonder to all who view them floating above us. Similarly, we each have the potential to let our hope rise for those who have given the gift of life and to those waiting or who have received the gift through organ, eye and tissue donation. This Donate Life Month, we ask you to let your hope rise with this lifesaving and healing community by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor; becoming educated about living donation; and championing the cause of organ, eye and tissue donation.
One organ donor can save the lives of up to eight people, restore sight to two people through cornea donation and heal up to 75 others through tissue donation.
On average, 17 people die each day waiting on a lifesaving organ transplant. Registering your decision to become an organ donor and sharing that decision with your family is the most effective way to ensure you can save lives through donation. Your decision to register serves as a sign of hope and support to those who continue to wait.
LifeShare encourages residents to enroll in the Donate Life Registry. Oklahomans have three options to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor. Residents can sign-up when renewing their driver’s license, visit LifeShareRegistry.org to sign up online or call 800-826-LIFE (5433) and request a donor registration form.
