Raising Heart Transplant / Organ Donation Awareness
Our HeartLink Program helps raise heart transplant organ donation awareness throughout the country. We help increase awareness about organ donation by having our Team HeartBrothers volunteers speak at schools and educational facilities about its importance.
- Only 37% of people in the US who are eligible to be an organ donor are actually registered to donate their organs.
- The number of heart transplants performed each year had remained flat (at 2,500) until 2019 when it increased rapidly to 3,551 based on several factors.
We also plan to add more programming in the future including first-responder education and improved protocols for awareness.
You can register be an organ, eye or tissue donor today: DONATE LIFE.
