A Powerful Animation Shows A Deadly Problem New York Has. A Lot Of Other States Have It Too.

Waiting in line can determine a lot more than a person's patience. It can determine a person's shot at life if they are in need of an organ transplant — and there are a lot of people in that boat right now in New York and all over the country.

New York is ranked 49th in the country in registered organ donors, so if you live there, be a champ and register. And if you live somewhere else, well, you're not off the hook! More than 123,000 people in the United States are awaiting an organ transplant, so go ahead and check this state-by-state registry to see how you can help. OR check off that little box the next time you get your driver's license or state ID renewed so it'll say "organ donor" wherever you go!
