Community Awareness

The Brevard County Organ Transplant Support Group works to increase community awareness of the need for organ donation by participating in:

  • Community events and health fairs
  • Bone marrow drives
  • Providing speakers for civic groups, medical conferences, church socials and educational meetings
  • Operation of Donor Card programs
  • We involve people just like you to help spread the word on Organ, Tissue, Cord Blood and Cornea donations.

It is estimated that there are more than 100,000 people in the United States waiting for organ transplants. Many more suffer from blindness, medical conditions or devastating injuries that can be successfully treated with donated corneas or tissue.

Everyone is likely to have a friend, neighbor or a family member who has been or who will need organ or tissue donations. Last year, more than 28,000 lives were saved through organ transplants in the USA.
