These Ohioans were saved and healed through organ and tissue donation.

In Ohio today, more than 3,000 of our family members, friends, neighbors and colleagues are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant, and you have the power to make a difference by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor. Your decision to become a donor has the power to save the lives of up to eight people through organ donation, give sight to two others through the donation of your corneas and heal as many as 75 through the gift of tissue. You never know when you, or someone you love, will need a lifesaving or healing transplant, so don't wait. Register your decision today at the links below.
