Illinois has reached the 7 million mark for registered organ and tissue donors!
Secretary of State Jesse White shared the news a few days ago:
Outside of the large number, why is that news so important?
Each year nearly 300 people die waiting for a transplant in Illinois - and thanks to people registering to become a donor we have taken steps to saving those lives!
Jesse White says:
Not signed up to be a donor?
It takes about a minute to do and it could improve the quality of life for up to 25 people!
