April is Donate Life Month and New Jersey is asking residents to consider becoming organ donors.
National “Donate Life Month” is the perfect time to consider the difference you can make in the lives of others through organ donation,” said Health and Senior Services Commissioner Alaigh. “I urge all residents to register as organ donors. Just one person can make a difference in as many as 50 lives. The gift of life is truly the greatest gift of all.”
Nationally, there are more than 106,000 people—including nearly 4,600 New Jersey residents—on a waiting list to receive a life-saving organ transplants, according to the New Jersey Sharing Network.
