Each April, Unyts celebrates National Donate Life Month.
Are YOU a registered organ, eye, and tissue donor? If not, now is the perfect time to register. Register here.
During National Donate Life Month, Unyts encourages Western New Yorkers all month long to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors, and to join in on the conversation about donation. We will also be celebrating those who have given the Gift of Life, through local stories of donation.
This year's theme was inspired by bicycles and the quote, "Life is a beautiful ride!" The bicycle is a symbol of progress and the circle of life, much like the organ donation and transplantation journey.
