Organ Donation is the Gift of Life
When you elect to become an organ donor, your generous, precious gift may save up to eight lives—and enhance many others through tissue donation. Last year alone, organ donors made possible more than 28,000 transplants. Unfortunately, thousands die every year waiting for a donor organ that never comes. You have the power to change that.
At Crozer-Keystone, we provide a Living Donor Advocate for every Living Donor candidate—an independent, non-transplant team specialist to help potential living donors understand the issues and specifics of kidney donation. And of course, we offer a wealth of educational materials for transplant candidates and living donors, alike.
Gift of Life Donor Program
Crozer-Keystone Health System is proud to partner with the Gift of Life Donor Program and raise community awareness about organ donation.
Since 1974, Gift of Life has coordinated more than 40,000 life-saving organ transplants and an estimated 600,000 tissue transplants. Gift of Life serves as the link between donors and patients awaiting life-saving organ and life-enhancing tissue transplants. Serving nearly 11 million people in the region, Gift of Life’s coordination of over 44 donors-per-million-population ranks among the highest in the world.
