Why should I become an organ donor?
You have the power to save a life. According to the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), there are more than 123,000 individuals waiting for organs in the United States, including an estimated 13,000 in Texas. The need for donors is far greater than the number of people who actually donate. Becoming an organ donor is free, there is no cost to become a registered organ donor.
End the wait.
