Through this one choice, you can impact the lives of 50 more.  One choice, can give more life than you could ever imagine.

  • An individual’s declaration of his/her intent to be an organ donor constitutes legal consent.
  • The Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) is required to establish a donor registry of everyone who has agreed to make an anatomical donation.  The information is to be made available to procurement agencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
