The State of Organ Donation in Colorado and Wyoming

The demand for organ transplants continues to outstrip organ donations, but making the decision to be an organ donor can be a complicated matter. Produced by the Denver-based Donor Awareness Council, The State of Organ, Eye & Tissue Donation: Colorado & Wyoming 2006 (18 pages, PDF) reviews the facts and misconceptions about organ donation and dispels the four "myths" that keep people from becoming donors. The report also offers 2005 data on organ, eye, and tissue donation and transplantation in the two Rocky Mountain states.
