Orthofix is proud to support Donate Life America, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization committed to increasing the number of donated organs, eyes, and tissue available to save and heal lives. Once again, Orthofix is pleased to celebrate National Donate Life Awareness Month in April.
Donate Life America helps encourage Americans to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors, recognize the clinical teams continuing their dedicated work to save those waiting for a second chance at life, and honor those who have saved lives through the gift of donation.
For this year’s theme, Make A Splash, Donate Life America was inspired by the natural world of a pond coming to life in the spring. Frogs (and toads!) are a sign of healing and renewal, and water lilies represent hope. The lily pads we see on the surface of a pond are part of a much larger plant rooted below the water. The water lily plant reminds us of the support and collaboration needed for hope to bloom.
This National Donate Life Month, we ask you to be a part of this interconnected life-sustaining community by:
- registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor
- becoming educated about living donation
- championing the Donate Life cause
Orthofix provides a number of biologic solutions for our patients through the generosity of donors and their families. We are honored to be stewards of this gift of donation as we work with clinicians to help their patients on their road to recovery.
