Become an organ donor today
Every year, thousands of lives are saved across the country because of organ transplantation, and many of them right in our back yard. This wouldn't be possible without the selfless sacrifices of individuals willing to share the gift of life by becoming an organ donor.
Sal and Michelle's Story
Michelle Gonzalez was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) at 12 years old. In 2020, as an adult, she underwent a kidney transplant at Methodist Hospital Specialty and Transplant in San Antonio, Texas. The donor, her husband Sal, was her perfect match. He now runs marathons to raise awareness and encourage others to become organ donors. Hear about their organ donation experience below.
Choosing to donate an organ is a life-changing decision for both the donor and the recipient – and can inspire other ordinary people to do extraordinary things. In Texas alone, there are currently over 10,000 individuals awaiting organ transplants according to Texas Organ Sharing Alliance. 20 people die each day as a result of the drastic organ shortage.
