A Personal Appeal From Larry Hagman
As one who has personally been touched by the gift of life, I encourage you to work with me to drive home the message that organ donation works and every American should consider it. Last year, 11,684 Americans and their families donated organs. This resulted in 20,593 life-saving transplants. Although these numbers are promising, it is still not enough for the thousands more critically ill individuals who could have been helped if more organs were available. There are now more than 82,000 people on the national organ transplantation waiting list. Everyday, 16 people die waiting for an organ transplant to give them a second chance at life.
It is so important to get the word out … transplantation saves lives. Experts suggest that each of us could save or help as many as 50 people by being an organ donor.
We recycle everything these days … paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, tires …. why not recycle ourselves?
