There are more than 100,000 people on the National Organ Transplant Waiting List. More than 21,000 of those people live in California, according to Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Donor Registry. Despite this, there are about 8.5 million licensed drivers and ID card holders in the nation and only 23% of those people have checked ?yes? on their license or ID card to register as an organ and tissue donor. That number drops to 18% in the state of California. In an effort to bring recognition to the need for organ donors and the importance of letting friends and family know if you are a registered donor, state registries across the nation, together with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, are celebrating National Donor Life Month.
