Southwest Transplant Alliance to host organ and tissue registration drive


Long-time DFW Hospital Council Associate Member Southwest Transplant Alliance will host a donor registration drive to encourage people to register their decision to become organ, eye and tissue donors this Friday, April 28 from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. at Victory Plaza next to the American Airlines Center and outside of the WFAA TV studios in Dallas.

More than 10,000 Texans and 118,000 U.S. residents are on the waiting list for an organ transplant. Sadly, 22 people die each day waiting for a lifesaving transplant. One person can touch more than 75 lives through the gift of donation.

The registration drive will include representatives from Southwest Transplant Alliance, the organ recovery agency in Dallas to learn about organ, eye and tissue donation.

This organ donor registration event is being held in honor of National Donate Life Month, which occurs every April.
