Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center, Registered Donor
Share Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center's story with others:
The decision to become a registered donor is an act of generosity and a symbol of hope for the 122,000 men, women and children in the United States who are waiting for life-saving organ transplants. Every 10 minutes, that waiting list grows and another name is added. Of those people waiting to receive the gift of life, over 2,300 live in Arizona. By registering as an organ donor, you have the potential to give the gift of life. One organ and tissue donor can save and heal up to 50 lives.
For many transplant recipients, receiving the gift of donation is a miracle. It allows them to do things they weren’t able to do before, such as walk, see and spend more time with their loved ones. Donation also provides many donor families with comfort knowing that their loved one’s gift saved and healed lives.
This April, Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center is joining other health care organizations throughout Arizona to participate in the Health Care for Hope campaign to share information about donation and encourage others to register as organ and tissue donors. By registering for the first time as a donor, or reaffirming your donor status, you can stand with us in support of donation.
Anyone can register to be a donor. There are no health requirements or age limits! More than 2.6 million Arizonans are already registered as organ and tissue donors and Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center wants all of our friends to join us in saying “YES” to hope and generosity by registering today!
