Say "Yes" Today

Let's talk health and how lives can be saved.

LifeLink of Georgia is partnering with the Dekalb County Public Library on a series of educational talks. Our desire is to educate the community on the importance of organ donation while also encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Here are a few quick facts:

  • Did you know…one organ and tissue donor could save eight lives, and improve the lives of dozens more? That’s right, one donor could directly impact more than 80 people, returning them to renewed health and mobility.
  • Did you know…with the exception of living donation, usually living kidney donation to a family member or friend, donation occurs after death? Physicians and nurses caring for patients who are ill or injured make every attempt to save the life of every patient, and they are not involved in the process of donation or transplantation. Donation becomes an option only after all lifesaving measures have been exhausted and a patients has been declared clinically and legally dead.
  • Did you know…organ and tissue donation place no financial burden on the donor’s family? All costs associated with donation are covered by the organ or tissue recovery organization, which in Georgia, is LifeLink of Georgia.
  • Did you know…how easy it is to register as a life-saving organ and tissue donor? Click the yellow “Say Yes Today” button on the right of your screen to register online, document your decision on your iPhone using the health app or say “yes” to donation when you get or renew your driver license.

We hope you can join us at one of these locations during the months of January and February.
