(Black PR Wire) To donate an organ is to give the gift of life. August is National Minority Donor Awareness Month - a key observance that deserves recognition and requires our attention. This observance is a collaborative effort by national organizations to save and improve the quality of life by encouraging organ, eye, and tissue donation. It raises awareness and celebrates organ donation and transplantation in communities of color. Our call to action? To encourage donor registration and to promote healthy living and disease prevention to decrease the need for transplantation. Together, we can make the difference of a lifetime and help our communities thrive. It’s time to not only give National Minority Donor Awareness Month our attention, but those who have donated, their recognition.
