April is National Donate Life Month. This month features activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors and to celebrate individuals who have saved lives through the gift of donation.
As part of National Donate Life Month, National Pediatric Transplant Week will be observed April 22-26. This week focuses on the message of ending the pediatric transplant waiting list. Throughout the week, clinical partners share their innovative work and patient stories (candidates and recipients), donor families whose children have saved and healed lives through organ, eye, and tissue donation are honored, and recipient families share their thanks and celebrate milestones.
