The California Department of Motor Vehicles and Donate Life California announced yesterday that more than eight million Californians have now registered as organ and tissue donors through the state’s Donate Life California Organ & Tissue Donor Registry, a 33 percent increase in 12 months. The orgainzations attribute the surge in registrations to continuing education about donation and the convenience for Californians to sign up as donors at the same time that they apply for or renew driver licenses or I.D. cards at the DMV.
Congratulations Californians on making the brave choice to donate and helping to increase possibilities for patients in need of organ and tissue tranplants! Tissue transplants can have the same life-saving and life-enhancing benefits as organ transplant.
