Organ Donation in Arkansas
Organ donation is organized by the Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency (ARORA). The group works hard to match available organs with people in need.
You may not want to think about donating your organs, but it is important for all of us to consider the decision now while we still can make a difference.
You can read about what organs and tissues can be transplanted as well as who can be an organ or tissue donor on the ARORA website. Questions about how organs and tissues are recovered are also answered.
It is easy to become a donor. When you apply for your driver's license or go in for a renewal, let the licensing desk know you want to become a donor. Once your license is printed, it will indicate your choice to be a donor.
You can also call the ARORA office at (501) 907-9150 to discuss options for registering with the donor agency. Talk with your family, friends, and doctor about becoming a donor. Your family will appreciate knowing your wishes.
