Why Organ Donation Is Important?

Why organ donation is important?

Did you know that seventeen people will die today? They will not die because they were in a car wreck, involved in a shooting, or because it was simply that their time had come. Seventeen people will die because they couldn't get an organ transplant in time. Money's not the issue here. Neither is scarcity. There are potential donors who pass away every day who could meet the needs of people on the waiting list. The problem is the potential donors die without leaving instructions that they wish to be an organ donor. Each donor could enhance the lives of up to fifty people. Everyone should sign up to be an organ donor because the greatest gift you can give is the gift of life. According to the United Network of Organ Sharing, as of February 28, 2006, there are 91,666 people on the waiting list for a life saving organ transplant (Organ Donation). The actual number of organs needed is even greater because some people on the waiting list are waiting on multiple organs.
I have heard reports of a city, a city that disappears each year. It is not a large city but rather a smaller sized one of about 5000 people. The borders of our town are vast as the United
States of America for such a small town it covers a lot of territory. Being small in numbers doesn't hinder its influence for it spans the ethnic borders of race. Gender and economic borders make no difference for this killer has no heart. Age is not given a thought as young and old are both taken, for this malignancy is no respecter of persons.
The death of a city is a serious thing yet each year a city dies. Each year around 5000 people disappear never to be seen again. These people are as diverse in their background as the population of the United States and die needlessly. They are the people that perish while on the national organ waiting list.
Each year the organ transplant list gets longer and the organs available
