Iowa Organ Donation
Consider organ donation
Over 99,000 Americans currently wait for a life-saving organ transplant. According to the Iowa Donor Network there are 548 Iowans on that list. Nineteen people on the national waiting list die every day because there are not enough donated organs.
In Iowa, many individuals sign up to become an organ donor via their driver’s license, but to actually become an eligible organ donor they must also register with Iowa Donor Network. It’s a simple and easy process, which can be done online.
The Iowa Donor Network encourages families to talk about their desire to be an organ donor before an unexpected event would occur, so they already know their loved one’s wishes and aren’t having to make a decision in a time of crisis.
