New Website Makes it Fast to Save Lives
The Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency wants you to know you can save eight lives in thirty seconds.
Today, the agency was registering people to become organ and tissue donors through their new website at Singing River Hospital in Pascagoula.
Organ recovery specialists tell News 25 there are over 120,000 people waiting for an organ transplant just in the United States. Twenty-two people die each day because they did not get a transplant. Sonny Soileau with Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency said, “If you think about it, there is probably someone you know that is in need of an organ or a tissue transplant, anybody on dialysis, your neighbors, probably someone in your church. These people without organ donations are going to die without the transplant. It’s something that happens after your death, the gift of life, something that you can do with ease.”
The Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency’s new website is called itssupereasy.org. Anyone over 18-years-old can register to become a donor.
