In a 2010 study, 90 percent of Ohioans said they have a positive view of donation, and 80 percent said they would wish to donate to a patient in need – but only 54 percent of Ohioans had actually made the commitment of joining the Ohio Donor Registry. Meanwhile, 3,400 Ohioans await a life-saving transplant. On average, one will die every 48 hours awaiting a transplant that doesn’t come in time. Donate Life Ohio is a coalition of the state’s organ, eye and tissue recovery agencies dedicated to educating Ohioans about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation and motivating them to join the Ohio Donor Registry. For more information on donation, please contact one of the representatives below.
