September 21-28 is the first annual living donor awareness week in Colorado! This week promotes education and awareness of living donation in Colorado and nationwide.
2,360 Coloradans are currently on the waiting list for an organ transplant. Three of those people will die each day while waiting for an organ. If just 1 out of 2,000 adult Coloradans became living donors, 95% of those Coloradans waiting for a transplant would receive a living donor organ.
Celebrate Living Donor Awareness Week by educating yourself and others about the lifesaving gift of organ donation!
