Of all the states, New York ranks 49th in the percentage of residents registered as organ donors. But in stereotypical, selfish New York fashion, we rank 3rd in the percentage people waiting for organ donations. Long Live NY is aiming to reduce the difference between the those rankings by encouraging healthy lifestyles, organ donation and increasing education around the life-saving power of donating a healthy organ.
We work to increase awareness and foster understanding of organ and tissue donation among health care professionals and the general public in an effort to make organ donation a fundamental societal value.
If you are not a donor, perhaps you should be. You can register for free on the NY DMV’s Website to help save lives.
