Organ donation – sharing the gift of life

By GLENETTA SHUEY

Special to the Daily News

April is National “Donate Life” Month. Nationwide, over 120,000 people are waiting for an organ. Each day 4,000 more people are added to the national waiting list. All of these people are in desperate need of an organ to live, or other tissue or bone transplants to better the quality of their lives. More than 6,500 people a year — about 18 a day — die before that organ becomes available.
