VITALE BILL DESIGNATING APRIL AS ‘DONATE LIFE MONTH’ SIGNED INTO LAW

Legislation Increases Awareness and Encourages New Jerseyans to Become Organ and Tissue Donors

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Joseph F. Vitale that draws awareness to the increasing need for organ and tissue donors throughout New Jersey was signed into law today.

“Donating an organ and giving someone a second chance at life is by far the greatest gift a person can give,” said Senator Vitale, D-Middlesex, Chairman of the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee and a registered organ donor. “To the folks living on the organ donation waiting list, and the thousands of others whose lives have been saved due to receiving a transplanted organ, donors are true heroes. However, there is a critical shortage of organ donors in New Jersey and around the country, and we have to do better.”
