In 2020, for the 10th year in a row, the number of heroes who gave the gift of life set an all-time record.
12,587 generous donors provided 33,309 life-saving organ transplants.
At home in Ohio, there was also an increase, as 540 generous donors provided 1,501 life-saving organ transplants.
Last year, Life Connection of Ohio also saw a milestone year with 126 donor heroes – a 35.5% increase from the previous record of 93 in 2019 – providing 348 life-saving organ transplants – a 12.3% increase from the previous record of 310 in 2019.
None of these records would be possible without the generosity of those who gave the gift of life and their families. It is because of their incredible generosity that so many recipients are alive today and countless others are inspired to Donate Life.
