April #MonthlyMission: Reaching 200 organ donors

By Tony Hart, Champion Specialist, @TonyHart87

Help us reach our goal to register 200 organ donorsBeing an organ donor is a generous and worthwhile decision that can be a lifesaver. Organ donation gives hope to people awaiting a transplant.

During Donate Life Month, Mayo Clinic has set a goal to sign up 200 new organ donors. One donor can affect up to 85 lives. A difference can be made for thousands on the transplant waiting list with your help.

You can help reach the goal by:

There are nearly 115,000 people still waiting for an organ transplant. Help close the gap today.

I know I can never give blood as survivor of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma; is this also true of organ donations?

@mepowers, I found the following information on Donate Life America – https://www.donatelife.net/

Frequently Asked Questions: Get answers to your questions about organ, eye and tissue donation.
Who can be a donor?
People of all ages and medical histories should consider themselves potential donors. Your medical condition at the time of death will determine what organs and tissue can be donated.
