During April, across the nation, we honor those who gave the gift of life, celebrate those who have received lifesaving transplants, and recognize that there are still many people waiting. Colorado and Wyoming are two of the most supportive states in the country when it comes to signing up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor. Thanks to the generosity of 278 organ donors last year, 739 lives were saved, and 829 organs were transplanted. Yet, the need is still great with around 1,500 people in our region continuing to wait for a lifesaving transplant. Let’s shine a light on organ, eye and tissue donation and give hope to those waiting this April! This April, ‘Shine a Light’ to show your support for organ, eye and tissue donation.
