Make a difference by donating your organs, eyes or tissues.Page Overview
In a word, organ donation is life. It is the simplest and most benevolent thing that you can do as an Arizona driver, and it doesn't take any of your money or time.
Anyone can be considered for organ donation regardless of age, race, and health.
Organ donors can specify what they will donate―everything from corneas, kidneys, and hearts to bones, skin, and lungs―so you can determine your level of comfort with the program. The actual donation will occur after your death, but the sentiment begins when you sign up and inform your loved ones that you have done so.
The decision to become a donor is a very personal one that should be reflected upon thoroughly. When doing so, consider that in Arizona alone, there are more than 1,100 people waiting for organ and tissue donations and that there are an estimated 91,000 men, women, and children waiting to receive organ donations in the United States.
There are several ways to become a registered donor. One way is to visit the Arizona Donor Registry's website or contact them at (800) 94-DONOR.
You can also register to be a donor when you apply for a driver license or identification card in the state of Arizona. The Arizona Donor Registry will then send you registration information by mail.Other Topics in This SectionArticles
