World Organ Donation Day

Today marks World Organ Donation Day, to raise awareness of donating organs, and encourage people to do the same. People can donate their organs ANY age, even under 18s with parental consent.

There are two forms of organ donation: live donations and cadaver donations. In a live donation, the donor is alive, whereas, in a cadaver, the donor donates after his death.

Donating an organ can save up to 8 lives! Since April this year, 1237 people have received an organ transplant in the UK, but there are still 5870 on the waiting list.
