“I knew I needed corrective surgery because I wanted to be able to return to wakeboarding and not have to worry about my knee.”– Brandon Sack, recipient
It is our mission to provide you with information regarding tissue donation and to encourage you to designate your decision to give the gift of life.
Tissue donation is life enhancing, and in some cases, life saving. One person’s gift can be a miracle for many.
Donated tissue can dramatically improve the quality of life for recipients, and even save lives. Tissue includes bone, skin, heart valves, connective tissue and veins used in surgeries and medical research. Most tissues are donated after death by people who previously committed to donation. Unlike organs, tissues can be donated up to 24 hours after a person’s heart has stopped beating.
