Join the Movement of Saving Lives
We all have a role in ending the wait list. Nearly 9,000 New Yorkers statewide — 131 of whom are children under the age of 18 — are waiting for a lifesaving transplant, according to United Network for Organ Sharing. Nationwide, the number is approximately 100,000 - enough to fill two Yankee stadiums. But the myths of organ donation are starting to fade away and New Yorkers are saving more lives than ever. Last year, more than 1,000 organs were transplanted thanks to the selfless acts of organ donors in the greater New York area — a record — but the urgency remains, and the work is far from done. Together, as a community, New York has the power to end the wait list.
