Organ and tissue donation provides a "second chance" for thousands of people each year and is the result of people helping people - ordinary people becoming "Heroes”. When you make a personal commitment to be an organ and tissue donor, you can save up to eight lives and improve the quality of nearly 50 people's lives. Many organ and tissues can be donated including heart, liver, kidney, lungs, pancreas, intestine, skin, bone, tendons, ligaments, vessels, heart valves, nerves, middle ear bone and eyes. The need is real. The need is urgent.

Here are the facts:

  • Every day 19 people die waiting for an organ transplant.
  • Every 12 minutes another person is added to UNOS national transplant list.
  • Over 60% of the US population are NOT registered donors.
  • More children are currently diagnosed with liver disease than leukemia – children make up 4% of the 16,875 people currently on the liver transplant waiting list.
  • 97% of organ donor registrations originate from state Departments of Motor Vehicles.

Miracles for Life is a national 501c3 non-profit located in Milford, Ohio. In 2001, Tom Starr, a two-time liver transplant recipient and healthcare activist founded Miracles for Life with his brother Larry Starr, a professional baseball athletic trainer.

Miracles for Life offers children and teens who are recovering from a lifesaving tissue or organ transplant to be themselves in an outdoor educational experience. Click here to learn more about Miracles for Life Youth Transplant Camp.
