In 2015, 165 Arizona organ donors saved 433 lives. The state’s 1,163 eye donors and 1,131 tissue donors touched thousands more with their contributions.
In January 2016, Arizona started the new year with its best month for saving lives through organ donation. Twenty-eight Arizona organ donors saved 87 lives.
And the Donor Network of Arizona hopes that April will result in even more people signing up to donate as Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has proclaimed April “Donate Life Month” to raise awareness of the need for donors.
The Arizona Diamondbacks will also host a “Donate Life Day” on April 10th vs. the Chicago Cubs.
