You have the power to make a difference, and it is easier than you might think. It could be as simple as making a phone call when scheduling surgery to donate tissue that would otherwise be discarded. Patients and their families can also donate tissue and organs after a loved one has passed. Human tissue — whether healthy or diseased — is critical to making the next breakthrough.
