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.
We are excited to announce that we successfully kicked off our 5,000 for 5,000 Organ Donor initiative, last month at the Capitol! A team from Methodist Heart Hospital and Methodist Specialty and Transplant Hospital, campuses of Methodist Hospital, were honored by San Antonio Senator, Jose Menendez. Also pictured is heart/kidney transplant patient, Earl Taylor (center).
In commemoration of Methodist reaching 5,000 transplants among our combined solid organ programs, we have the goal of adding 5,000 additional donors to the Texas donor list from mid-April through the end of the year.
