National Donate Life Month

by | Apr 1, 2024 | Balboa Announcement, National Days, News

In honor of #NationalDonateLifeMonth, Balboa Nephrology recognizes the incredible courage of organ donors and their families. You inspire hope and save lives. Thank you~

President Biden has declared April 2024 as National Donate Life Month. He honors organ donors, their families, and medical professionals who save countless lives through transplants. While progress has been made, over 100,000 people await transplants, highlighting the ongoing need for more donors. The President emphasizes that one donor can save up to 8 lives and improve many more through eye and tissue donation.

The proclamation details actions taken to improve the organ donation system, including increased competition, transparency, and funding for research aimed at reducing wait times and the need for transplants altogether.

The President encourages everyone to register as a donor at organdonor.gov and urges all Americans to learn more about organ, eye, and tissue donation.
