Colorado Living Donor Day

Honor Those Who Have Given the Gift of Life

Today, more that 2,200 Coloradans are waiting for a lifesaving transplant.  96% of them are waiting for a kidney or a liver, two organs that can be donated by a living person. Focusing on living donation is the only immediate solution for saving these lives.

If just 1 out of every 3,000 Coloradans donated a kidney, we could eliminate the kidney waiting list.

Last year, Governor Hickenlooper proclaimed June 13th to be the first ever Colorado Living Donor Day.  The American Transplant Foundation aims to celebrate this special day each year by providing educational and support resources to those who want to give the Gift of Life.  If you are interested in becoming a living donor or are a hopeful transplant recipient who is searching for a living donor, please click here to learn more about our free 1+1=LIFE Mentorship Program.

If you would like to make a donation in honor of this special day, please click here.  Your donation will come with the option of sending a "Thank You" E-card to the living donor in your life and will go directly to our programs that are available to help these courageous individuals go through their transplant journeys!
