More than 120,000 men, women and children currently need lifesaving organ transplants.
Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list.
In 2013, there were 14,013 organ donors resulting in 28,052 organ transplants.
An average of 18 people die each day from the lack of available organs for transplant.
More than 90% of Americans say they support donation but only 30% know the essential steps to take to be a donor.
Transplantation is one of the most remarkable success stories in the history of medicine, but despite continuing advances in medicine and technology, the need for organ and tissue is vastly greater than the number available for transplant.
Transplantation gives hope to thousands of people with organ failure and provides may other with active and renewed lives.
