We have made incredible strides, and yet, there is still more to do. I encourage anyone who has not yet signed up to do so. Every signature makes saving a life possible.” When Johnson took office in 2011, 27 percent of eligible Michigan residents had signed up. She made expanding the organ donor rolls a priority and directed staff to start asking customers if they wanted to sign up and began promoting organ donor registration throughout her branch offices. “We are thrilled at the continuing increase in the number of Michigan residents who choose to save and improve lives by signing up to be donors,” said Dorrie Dils, CEO of Gift of Life Michigan, the state’s organ and tissue donation program. “We thank the secretary of state and all of the staff who are on the frontline of this critical mission. People who join the Donor Registry give hope to the more than 3,100 people in our state awaiting a life-saving organ transplant and the tens of thousands more who will benefit from a tissue transplant.” “Eversight is delighted 66 percent of Michigan residents have joined the donor registry,” said David Bosch, president of Eversight, an organization responsible for recovering, evaluating and providing human eye tissue for transplantation and research. “We are proud to have worked with the Secretary of State and our donation partners to reach this landmark moment.” Every donor has the ability to save up to eight lives through organ donation and improve up to 75 more through cornea and tissue donation. Anyone can join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry, regardless of age or medical history. Go to www.michigan.gov/organdonation, call 866-500-5801 or visit any Secretary of State office to sign up. About 85 percent of people who sign up do so through Secretary of State offices. For more information on organ, eye and tissue donation, visit www.giftoflifemichigan.org/ or www.eversightvision.org/.
