Each opportunity to recommend a potential donor is invaluable, as the needs are great.

  • A corneal transplant can restore the sight of a visually impaired person.
  • A skin graft can help save the life of severe burn victims.
  • A heart valve donation can help a diseased heart function normally again.
  • A donation of bone and tendons makes reconstructive surgery possible.

Nearly 50% of patients who die in hospital can be human tissue donors.
