Donate Life Month Raising Awareness About Organ Donation

Local Officials Participate in National Donate Life Month Event

National Donate Life Month focuses on encouraging people "to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation", according to Donate Life America.

Camp Pendleton Marines raised the Donate Life flag to commemorate the beginning of National Donate Life Month while honoring Marine Corporal Thomas Mertz, who saved four lives by donating his organs after he passed away from a motorcycle accident. We each carry the potential to help make life a lovely ride for ourselves and then for others by registering as a donor, considering living donation, being a caregiver and championing the Donate Life cause. "We hope to increase that percentage this year". "The education and the awareness is now working, but there's still so much more work to do".

NY has the third highest need for donors in the country, yet the second lowest percentage of registered donors. Thousands more people are waiting for lifesaving and healing eye and tissue transplants. Each year, an estimated 400 men, women and children in the state die because to the shortage of donors.

On National Donate Life Blue & Green Day, the public is encouraged to wear blue and green Donate Life colors, hold events and partner with local restaurants, malls, media and community organizations to spread awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation. Becoming a donor is as easy as registering online, but even if you've registered with your state donor registry or National Donate Life Registry, and indicated your desire to be a donor on your driver's license, you must share your wishes with your family.

Registering to be an organ donor is a choice that every American has the right to make, and when donors register, a note is put on their drivers license or identification card.

The New Yorkers have the unique opportunity to enroll in the NYS DLR through the voter registration form and when applying for health insurance through the New York State of Health (nystateofhealth.ny.gov).

More information about NDLM can be found on the Donate Life America website.

Additionally, New Yorkers can show their support for organ and tissue donation by purchasing a "Life-Pass it On" custom license plate from the DMV.

Donation of one body's organs can save up to eight lives, and donation of tissue can save up to 75 lives, according to Donate Life America. Their goal is to ensure a transplant for every New Yorker in need. "Mandatory referrals will give patients waiting for a transplant a better chance of getting one sooner by increasing available organs and tissue".
