SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Right this very minute, there are over 120,000 people in the United States – 4,000 in the Garden State alone – awaiting an organ or tissue transplant. Despite the 2.5 million registered organ and tissue donors in the state, less than 1 percent will qualify upon death to be donors. As a result, one New Jersey resident dies every three days awaiting a transplant.

According to Donate Life America (http://www.donatelife.net), approximately 95 percent of Americans say they support organ donation, yet only about 50 percent are registered.“

Fortunately, for those looking to register as donors and/or those in need of a donation, NJ Sharing Network, is there to help.

Located in New Providence, the federally designated procurement organization (OPO) is dedicated to saving lives through organ and tissue donation. The organization, which this year is celebrating 30 years of saving lives, recovers organs and tissue and belongs to a national network that helps the 120,000 people waiting for a transplant. Additionally, the non-profit works to spread the word about the importance of donation and transplantation. Continue reading
