Saturn Celebrates 11 Years of Helping Save Lives Through Blood, Marrow, Organ and Tissue Donation
Date:2/9/2008

ns and dates of Saturn retailer blood collections in early February. Saturn retailers and their local blood center partners have collected over 226,000 units of blood since 1998.

-- Marrow donation - Saturn drives have helped add nearly 12,000 potential marrow donors to the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) Registry, and to date, 24 potentially lifesaving marrow matches have occurred as a direct result of Saturn National Donor Day. Each year approximately 38,000 patients fighting leukemia and other diseases will turn to the NMDP Registry seeking a match from an anonymous donor.

-- Organ, eye and tissue donation - Nearly 98,000 Americans are currently awaiting a lifesaving organ transplant. Sadly, an average of 18 patients die every day due to a shortage of donors. Saturn urges every American to commit to being a donor. Since the procedures for designating your donation decision vary from state to state, all Americans should visit the Donate Life America Web site, http://www.donatelife.net, to learn how to become an organ donor in their state. Most states maintain an online registry that will allow people to declare their desire to be a donor

Chris Klug, liver transplant recipient and world-class Alpine snowboarder, is Saturn National Donor Day's national spokesperson. Chris received his lifesaving transplant in 2000, and in 2002, won a Bronze Medal for the USA at the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. His remarkable story is testimony to the fact that donation not only saves lives, but can enable a great quality of life for those fortunate enough to receive a second chance thanks to lifesaving donation.

Saturn Corporation and its national partners as well as hundreds of local blood centers and community health organizations help to make Saturn National Donor Day possible. Saturn National Donor Day partners include: AABB, American Liver Foundation, American Society of Transplan
