National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed annually from September 15 – October 15. It is a great time to celebrate and honor the generosity of Hispanic donors and their families, while also underscoring the critical need for people from this diverse community to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. In California 1,791 Hispanics received organ transplants in 2020. Myths regarding donation continue to be major barriers preventing many Hispanics from becoming registered donors.

You can help by registering to be an organ, eye and tissue donor today.
