The Need

 

You have the power to save lives. Over 3,800 Marylanders are currently waiting for a life-saving transplant. You can give them hope at a second chance by registering today at www.donatelifemaryland.org.

“I simply cannot express in words my gratitude for the gift you have given me. To have a second chance at life is without a doubt, the greatest gift one can receive.” – Transplant Recipient

Despite advances in medicine and technology and increased awareness of organ donation and transplantation, the gap between supply and demand continues to widen. The number of people on the national waiting list continues to grow, while rates of donation and transplant stagnate.

“I now tell my story, your story, to many people and try and share with them all the compassion, love, happiness, and kindness that you have given me with this second chance at life.” – Transplant Recipient
