Milford Regional Medical Center Celebrates National Donate Life Month

Milford Regional Medical Center is celebrating National Donate Life Month this April to honor those touched by donation and transplantation.

Since 2002, April has been a month dedicated to sharing stories to spread the lifesaving message of donation in order to motivate people to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.

In 2015, Milford Regional had a total of 24 organ and tissue donations. The generosity of these donors restored health in the grateful recipients of lifesaving transplants.  Milford Regional is proud to be a Donate Life organization. 

Approximately half of the U.S. adult population is registered as donors.  Still, the number of people in need of transplants continues to outpace the number of donor organs. On average, 22 people die each day because the organs they need are not donated in time.

Registering your decision to become a donor is the most effective way to ensure you can save lives through donation and serves as a sign of hope to those who continue to wait.

To register as a donor or for more information about how to get involved, please visit www.DonateLifeNewEngland.org.
