I have heard alot of cases where people lost their life because they were waiting for an organ transplant which never came.
According to MayoClinic, It’s estimated that every day in the U.S. 21 patients die because of the lack of donor organs not to talk of Nigeria that people are still not totally aware they can do this.
It can be hard to think about what’s going to happen to your body after you die, let alone donating your organs and tissue. But being an organ donor is a generous and worthwhile decision that can be a lifesaver.
Organs that can be donated after death are the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and small intestines. Tissues include corneas, skin, veins, heart valves, tendons, ligaments and bones.
