Lakeland Celebrates Lives Saved Through Organ Donation

DonateLife

Thousands of men, women, and children around the country are awaiting lifesaving organ transplants. Each day, on average, 88 lives are saved by an organ transplant in the USA; but 22 people die daily waiting for a transplant that never comes.

During National Donate Life Month (NDLM), Spectrum Health Lakeland encourages community members to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors and celebrates those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

In 2018, the generosity of Michigan's 338 organ donors resulted in 1,087 life-saving organ transplants. Another 1,381 donors provided the gift of tissue for thousands of patients in need.

You can also show your support for organ donation by purchasing a “Donate Life” Michigan license plate. Proceeds from the purchase of this plate help support organ donation awareness.
