Eagle PR as partnered with the National Organ Donation to raise awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation among the community. Approximately 117,000 people wait for their lifesaving transplant, but many die before they are able to receive one daily. Our goals are to increase awareness and understanding of organ donation, encourage discussions, and promote the facts and benefits of organ and tissue donation in addition to clarifying myths that hinder donation.
84.5% of OC employees and students have a family member who has either donated or been a recipient or an organ or tissue transplant.
86.8% who are not organ donors have considered becoming one.
If you are sick or injured and admitted to the hospital, the number one priority is to save your life. Organ, eye and tissue donation can only be considered after all life-saving efforts have been made and death has been declared.
Anyone can donate an organ, eyes or tissue, regardless of medical history, age or race.
There is no cost to donors or family member for taking part in the transplantation process.
