Living Donations Save Children's Lives
In 2018, of the approximately 115,000 people who are on the waiting list for an organ transplant, nearly 2,000 are children. Each year, up to 100 children may die waiting for organs. But, parents and other adults can help save the lives of over 50 percent of those on the waiting list through living donation.
What is Living Donation?
Living donations are one of the most common needs for many procedures, including organ transplants.
You’ve probably heard of the most common living donation, blood. Many of us have donated blood, often on a regular basis. Donating blood provides red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets potentially saving three lives with each donation.
