Saint Vincent Hospital hosted Blue & Green Day on April 13th in recognition of Donate Life Month. Please join us in supporting our involvement and in spreading this message that helps us to literally save lives.
Interesting facts on organ donation:
- Currently, 54 percent of the U.S. adult population are registered organ and tissue donors.
- More than 116,000 people are waiting for a transplant and a second chance at life.
- On average, 20 people die each day because the organ they need is not donated in time. That is almost one person dying every hour. Registering your decision to become a donor is the most effective way to save lives through donation and is a sign of support to those who continue to wait.
