Living donation occurs when a living individual decides to donate an organ or part of an organ to someone in need of a transplant. Often, the living donor is a blood relative. However, anyone can be tested to be a living donor.
National Donor Sabbath, observed annually in November, seeks to educate faith-based communities about the need for organ, eye and tissue donors. Order free materials to celebrate National Donor Sabbath, taking place Nov. 13-15!
