Honor Those Who Have Given the Gift of Life on
Colorado Living Donor Day
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.
