HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) – New statistics released by Donate Life PA say 90 percent of the state’s residents support organ donations, but less than half are actually registered.
Checking a box is all that has to be done to save a life.
Of those not registered to donate in Pennsylvania, 82 percent say they would accept a donation.
So why aren’t they registered?
Twenty-three percent say they didn’t take the time, but Gift of Life representative Dwendy Johnson said it can be done online in 30 seconds.
Twenty-one percent of the people not registered say they didn’t think they were healthy enough.
“There is no age too old or too young,” Johnson said.
