April is Donate Life Month. Unyts and ECMC are celebrating a great partnership when it comes to organ transplantation. The Regional Center of Excellence for Transplantation & Kidney Care at ECMC is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to complete patient care. Unyts is WNY’s only organ, eye, tissue and community blood center.
It’s a time to remind the community how important it is to sign the organ donor registry. Around 800 people here in WNY are waiting for lifesaving organs today. Around 118 people are added to the nation’s transplant waiting list a day-that’s 1 every 10 minutes.
You have the power to be someone’s hero! During Donate Life month, sign the organ donor registry!
