The Connecticut Coalition for Organ and Tissue Donation, dba, Donate Life Connecticut, has recently launched a series of public awareness campaign ads on cable television aimed at educating residents about the importance of organ donation, both living and deceased, clarifying misleading myths, and increasing the number of registered organ donors who can potentially give the gift of life to someone in need. Donate Life Connecticut is dedicated to increasing the number of registered organ and tissue donors in Connecticut and beyond through public education and awareness.
It takes just two minutes to register to be a donor and during this season of giving, the gift of an organ or tissue transplant may truly mean the gift of renewed health, the promise of more time with loved ones, and the miracle of tragedy turned into hope. There are currently more than 116,000 people waiting for organ transplantation in the United States and every day, 22 patients expire due to lack of available organs.
