Gift of Life Donor Program Celebrates Black History Month

Currently, there are more than 115,000 men, women and children in the United States in need of a lifesaving or healing transplant, 30 percent of whom are of African American heritage. The chances for a successful transplant increase significantly when people of the same ethnicity are matched, so it is imperative that we continue to register more donors of all ethnic backgrounds.
