As Virginia’s Organ Procurement Organization, our goal at LifeNet Health is to establish trust and to dispel the myths about the donation process.
More than 100,000 people are awaiting an organ transplant in the U.S, and more than 2,500 of them are in Virginia.
Black patients make up nearly one-third of the national organ transplant waiting list and at least three Black patients die each day because they did not receive a life-saving organ transplant in time.
In Virginia, the need is even greater where almost half of the patients on the organ transplant wait list are Black.
