It's National Donor Day!

Celebrated every year on February 14th, National Donor Day is an observance dedicated to spreading awareness and education about organ, eye and tissue donation.

Kidney Resource Network would like to encourage everyone to register as an organ donor with the Department of Motor Vehicles. Also, talk to your family about your desire to donate your organs.

You can save a life today! We encourage everyone to consider being tested as a living kidney donor. The average lifespan of a patient on dialysis is 5 to 10 years. The average wait time for a deceased donor is 3 to 7 years (depending on where you live). Share your spare! If you know of someone who needs a transplant, help give them life worth living.

National Donor Day is also a day to recognize those who have given and received the gift of life through organ, eye and tissue donation, are currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant, and those who died waiting because an organ was not donated in time.

We celebrate all kidney transplant recipients and are honored to receive the gift of life from the donors, whether deceased or living. By spreading the word, perhaps we can reduce the number of dialysis patients who pass away waiting...

How do you get involved? Register at any of the following:

- National Donate Life Registry or

- At your local DMV

To be a living donor for someone specific, find out from that patient where they are listed. Otherwise, visit the National Kidney Registry at . Get all of the information you need to understand the process, what's involved, and see the various programs in which you can participate.

The most important donation you make in your lifetime is another life. Share your spare kidney.
