Cuomo today announced that New Yorkers applying for health insurance through NY State of Health, New York's official health plan marketplace, can now enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry as an organ donor.

Every 10 minutes another person is added to the national transplant waiting list.

In Idaho past year a record number of lives were saved because of organ donations, and sight restored to people through corneal transplants.

Although a third of her liver was donated in January of 2016, it did not go to one of the twins, but rather an eight month old boy.

Mary Keitany breaks a marathon record with 3rd London win
Bob Johnson (58, from the Scottish Boarders) must be the most dedicated and skilled runner the 10 year partnership has seen. The women's fastest marathon time was still kept by Radcliffe when she won the mixed race in 2003 with 2:15.25.

There are more than 22,000 Californians waiting for an organ transplant. "I believe that organ donors and their families are the most unsung heroes".

Everyone has the potential to be an organ, eye and tissue donor.

"If you look at the statistics at least in the NY area, even though many people believe in the concept of organ donation, just about 30 percent actually registered themselves", said Dr. Raghu Loganathan, the director of the intensive care unit at St. Barnabas Hospital. Second chances often create entirely new meanings. If you haven't registered to be a donor, your family will be asked to make the decision about donation on your behalf. "When I was screened to be able to donate a kidney to my friend, the process was really easy".

A White House resolution for National Donate Life Month says that every day, Americans sustain the miracle of life by generously donating their organs and tissues to others in need. The San Francisco Health Network is the City's only complete system of care and has locations throughout the City, including Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, Laguna Honda Hospital and Rehabilitation Center, and more than 15 primary care health centers. "Thanks to the commitment of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, great strides are being made that will make a difference in the lives of the almost 10,000 New Yorkers now awaiting a lifesaving organ transplant".
