ORGAN DONATION RESOURCES
Did you know that you can register to be a ORGAN DONOR online?  Visit www.donatelife.net
to find out your state's address.  You can also complete a donor card at this website and keep
it with you.  You can also indicate your wishes on your driver's license or State I.D. when you
apply or renew it.  You do NOT have to donate all of your organs; you may specify the ones
you will offer.  Neither age nor medical history should prevent you from becoming a donor. 
For more information, visit the official U.S. government website for organ and tissue donation

MEDICAL / CO-PAY PROGRAM:
Second Chance at Life (SCAL) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping organ
transplant patients throughout the state of Michigan. As transplant costs add up before,
during and after the transplant, SCAL seeks to provide financial assistance to transplant
patients who must rely on multiple sources to aid in the financial burden associated with
an organ transplant. SCAL has developed the Medical/Co-Pay Program to provide organ transplant patients in need, temporary financial assistance up to a lifetime maximum of
$1,000. The one-time grant will go toward non-Medicare costs such as pre and post-op
medical bills and co-pays as it relates to transplant recipients. This Program is entirely
funded by individual and corporate sponsors, with the designated grant going to those
deemed as most in need, as voted on by the SCAL Board of Directors.
