“I am. Are you?” is a campaign to increase the number of Illinois
residents who joined the state’s organ/tissue donor registry. The campaign is part of a national effort through Donate Life America
to increase the number of Americans who have taken action to become donors in their states to 100 million.
In Illinois, a 2006 statewide poll revealed that 87% of Illinois residents know that registering to be an organ, eye and tissue
donor is the “right thing to do.” Yet, 40% of Illinoisans have not registered.
It’s important that everyone who supports becoming a donor takes a few minutes to register this important decision. In January 2006, Illinois law changed and a new donor registry was launched. By joining the First-Person Consent Registry, you will ensure that your decision to donate will be honored.
