Health Alert WEB EXCLUSIVE: National Donor Day

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. (WDTV) -- Question: What can a deceased donor give vs. a living donor?

Answer: A deceased donor can give their kidneys, pancreas, liver, lungs, heart, intestinal organs, tissue, and corneas. A living donor is able to give a kidney or a portion of a lung or liver.

Right now, there are 2,500 people in western Pennsylvania and West Virginia waiting for a life-saving transplant. I hope you will join us at United Hospital Center on Thursday, February 14, to register to become a donor. For more information please call me at 681-342-2150. All donors should remember to always let their family and friends know of their decision to donate.
