Donor Alliance Honored By Colorado Legislature In Observation Of National Donate Life Month
Date:4/23/2012

DENVER, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Colorado legislature recognized Donor Alliance for its contributions to the promotion of organ and tissue donation in Colorado. Members of Donor Alliance's leadership team, Governing Board of Directors and community partners accepted the resolution, sponsored by Senator Lucia Guzman (D-Denver), Senator Jean White (R-Hayden), Representative Dan Pabon (D-Denver) and Representative Carole Murray (R-Castle Rock). The recognition was timed in conjunction with National Donate Life Month, which honors the generosity of organ, eye and tissue donors and their families and commemorates all transplant recipients in the United States.

Donor Alliance, a community-based, non-profit organization, is the federally-mandated organ procurement organization serving Colorado and most of Wyoming. The organization coordinates with more than 100 hospitals, including four transplant centers, throughout the donation service area. Donor Alliance was recognized by the Colorado legislature for the important role it plays in supporting education and awareness building of donation. This dedication has led Colorado to have one of the highest donor designation rates in the country: 67 percent of eligible driver's license and ID holders in Colorado are registered donors.

Further, Donor Alliance was lauded for recovering a record number of organ donors in 2011, enabling 52 more people to receive life-saving transplants than in 2010. Additionally, last year Donor Alliance worked with 966 tissue donors and their families to recover life-saving and healing tissue, providing bone and skin grafts that will impact thousands.

"It is an incredible honor and a very moving tribute to everyone whose life has been touched by donation for Donor Alliance to receive this recognition from the Colorado Senate and House of Representatives," said Sue Dunn, president and CEO of Donor Alliance. "Currently, more than two thousand people in Colo
