Why be an Organ Donor?

 

Dr. Chris Barry is a transplant surgeon and researcher at the University of Rochester Medical Center.  In this TEDx TALK, he discusses the power of modern transplant surgery to touch people's lives. He also talks about the obstacles that prevent our society from realizing the true potential to help others through organ donation. His talk resounds with a call to action.  

Organ Preservation Research

 

Stasis supports and advocates for enhanced organ preservation techniques. As organ preservation technology advances, organs can be stored longer, giving medical professionals time to identify appropriate matches, transport the organ, and perform the transplant surgery.  You may enjoy this presentation by the Organ Preservation Alliance.

Texas Represents 10% of U.S. Organ Needs

 

Organ donation begins with a person who recognizes an opportunity to help others, enrolls in a state donor registry, and shares their decision with family and friends. The culmination of the process occurs when the person donates - and saves the lives of as many as eight people who need an organ transplant, and improves the lives of as many as a hundred people who need tissue transplants.
