National Donor Day
February 14th is National Donor Day
Over 90,000 people are waiting for the gift of life. Each day, about 74 people receive an organ transplant. Unfortunately, 17 people die each day waiting for transplants that can't take place because of the shortage of donated organs. Learn more about organ donation and what it means to be an organ donor.
The National Donor Day initiative is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Transplantation.
