Video: See How UPMC Celebrated National Donate Life Month


On average 22 people die every day waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. But what if one simple act could help save the lives of those 22 people?

During National Donate Life Month, we honor all of those who have given the gift of life through organ, eye, and tissue donation. They have made a difference in so many lives, including those waiting for an organ transplant and their families. Thank you to the transplant recipients, living donors, donor families, and UPMC and CORE staff for helping us celebrate National Donate Life.
