Did you know New York is ranked last in the entire country for the percentage of residents registered as organ donors? This is troubling because every 18 hours a New Yorker dies while waiting for an organ. It takes 1 donor to save 8 lives.
Jamaica Hospital is taking action and teaming up with LiveOnNY to help launch the first ever Organ Donor Enrollment Day on Oct. 6th. The event is being executed with one goal in mind: enroll as many willing New Yorkers as possible as organ donors in a single day.
Join us in the hospital’s main lobby from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and the cafeteria from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm to register or show your support for this very important cause.
