National Donate Life Month
PENNSYLVANIA (WENY) -- April is National Donate Life Month month. PennDOT leaders want every resident with a drivers license to register to become an organ and tissue donor.
More than 4.5 million PA residents with a license or I.D. card are already registered. More than 8,500 residents currently await organ transplants in the Keystone State.
"Potential donors can take action today to add the organ donor designation to their license or identification card, rather than waiting for renewal time," said PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch. "The 90 seconds you spend online requesting the designation for your license or identification card could potentially save a life."
To add your name to the list, all you have to do is visit http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/ select the "donate Life Pennsylvania" icon at the bottom of the page.
