No one wants to think about organ donations while they are young, healthy and living life to the fullest. But organ donation is a kind, selfless action that can help so many people. According to the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency (MORA,) 123,000 people are on a waiting list for a donor organ. In the state of Mississippi that number is 1,400. Each day, 18 people die waiting for a transplant. Just one donor can save the lives of up to eight people and enhance the lives of more than 50 others, according to MORA.
