Organ Donation in Indiana
Many Hoosiers are on waiting lists for organ, tissue and eye donations, according to the Indiana Organ Procurement Organization (IOPO).
Throughout the country, people are hoping to receive a life-saving transplant. Moreover, people die every day waiting for such a transplant. Another person is added to the transplant waiting list frequently.
The good news is that many lives are saved from the gift of organ donation.
If you'd like to help others by becoming a donor, Indiana makes it simple for you. When you go to apply for or renew your driver's license, you will be asked if you'd like to become a donor. Just say "yes," and a red heart will be printed on your license showing that you have agreed to become a donor.
