Mile High Magazine 04/07/2024 Donor Alliance

Guest: Heather Burke PR/Communications Manager Since 2003, Donor Alliance and the nation have been observing April as National Donate Life Month to raise awareness about the importance of registering as an organ, eye, and tissue donor. It’s also a month to honor the heroic donors and their families who said “yes” to organ, eye, and tissue donation.  Currently, there are nearly 1,300 people in our community who are still waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant.  Last year there were 300 organ donors and of those 300 organ donors and their families provided more than 900 life saving organ transplants.  Also, there was more than 1700 tissue donors who provided more than  100,000 tissue grafts.  Anybody can donate at any age, there is no age limit.  Donor Alliance educates and inspires the community about the importance of registering to be an organized tissue donor.
