The need for organ donors has never been greater. In the United States, there are more than 120,000 people currently in need of organ transplants. Of these, nearly 10,000 live right here, in the greater New York metropolitan area.
One organ donor can save up to eight lives. Meanwhile, only 31% of New Yorkers age 18 and over have enrolled in the New York State Donate Life Registry as organ, tissue and eye donors.
LiveOnNY is meant to convey the duality and positivity of organ and tissue donation. Through donation, recipients and donors live on. Recipients live on through the selfless act of donors. Donors live on via a legacy made stronger as a result of their donation, and they live on through others.
Join LiveOnNY in making New York number one in lives saved through donation. Join them in helping New Yorkers, and New York to live on.
