What Can Be Donated

Organ, eye and tissue donation provides a second chance at a healthy life for many people each year. By making the decision to become a registered donor you have the opportunity to be one of the individuals who make these miracles happen.

Organs which can be recovered for lifesaving transplants include: heart, liver, pancreas, lungs, kidneys and intestines. Examples of tissues that could enhance or save someone’s life include: corneas, cardiovascular tissues, bones and skin grafts.

With ongoing research, the need for transplantable tissue continues to grow. Life Alaska Donor Services staff has the expertise to ensure Alaska’s donors and their families are able to maximize their donation wishes.

By becoming an organ, eye and tissue donor you are truly sharing the gift of life with others.
