OneLegacy is the bridge to life for nearly 20 million Southern Californians and waiting recipients nationwide. Last year alone, OneLegacy enabled the transplant of 1,661 organs from 548 donors, marking the sixth consecutive year of record-breaking increases in lifesaving and healing organ donation and transplantation. In addition, more than 190,000 lives were healed, and their vision was restored through tissue and cornea donation.
Today, more than 107,000 Americans, including 21,000 Californians, are still waiting for a donor, and the need for transplants is growing faster than potential donors as less than 1% of all deaths qualify for donation. OneLegacy helps inspire donation by reminding people that the opportunity to donate and to receive a lifesaving transplant knows no national, racial, ethnic or religious boundaries, nor sexual orientation and that one organ donor can save up to eight lives, and one tissue donor can help as many as 75 others heal.
