More than 114,000 people in the United States and millions more around the globe are waiting for the heart, kidney or liver transplant that will save their lives. Many of those people—an average of 18 people per day—will die waiting, because there simply aren’t enough organ donors to meet the need. Medical experts believe that broader awareness about organ donation could go a long way toward solving this crisis.
With the addition of “organ donor” to the Life Events section of Timeline, you can state your intention to become an organ donor, and share your story about when, where or why you decided to become a donor. If you are not officially registered as an organ donor, sign up with the appropriate registry.
You can always choose who can see this info by using the audience selector next to the story. The easiest way to see if one of your friends is an organ donor is to go the About section of their Timeline and review their Life Events section.
