Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the availability of viable deceased organ donors is dwindling; as a result many people in need of lifesaving organ transplants are losing their fight.
More viable living organ donors from MatchingDonors.com are needed now more than ever.
For the past 16 years, we have never experienced anything like this health emergency for patients needing transplants in our lifetimes. Hospitals have to make impossible decisions as they balance the risk of death from kidney failure with the infection risk of the coronavirus from deceased donors.
Every day thousands of deceased donor organs are no longer viable.
In conjunction with various health organizations throughout the United States, MatchingDonors has created this very successful PSA campaign to help people recognize that they can save lives by being a living organ donor, to encourage them to register as an altruistic living organ donor, and to make them realize they can help save the lives of people needing organ transplants by donating other things.
MatchingDonors is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and the nation’s largest living organ donor organization finding and registering living organ donors for people needing organ transplants in the United States.
Currently, 22 people die every day waiting on the government’s deceased organ donor waiting list.
Those that live to get a transplant from that list wait seven to 12 years for their organ.
In contrast, many patients receive their life saving organ transplant from MatchingDonors.com within only six months.
In addition, there are usually over 250 people that die every day waiting for an organ transplant that are not on the government’s waiting list because they are too old or too sick.
Now because of Covid-19, the number of people that die has grown exponentially.
MatchingDonors is doing everything it can to stop that by providing a forum for all people in need of lifesaving transplants to match with living, altruistic donors.
