  • What is the difference between organ and tissue donation?
    A far greater number of people have the opportunity to donate tissue for transplantation. People can become eye and tissue donors up to 24 hours after death, regardless of where death occurs. Tissue donation doesn’t require the donor’s death to have occurred under the same limited circumstances as organ donation. Unlike organs, tissue can be stored for varying periods of time. Deceased organ donation can only happen after a person has died, usually in an intensive care unit and under strict conditions. More information is available at DonateLife
