Wyo.4th Highest State in Percent Registered for Organ Donation

Wyoming is ranked fourth in the nation with 59.6 percent of people holding drivers licenses and ID cards registered as organ donors.

Cherame Serran, Wyoming Cares/Wyoming Shares program coordinator with the Wyoming Department of Health, says that that they want that number to be even larger.

She adds one common misconception.

She says there are around 145 people in the state waiting for organ donations, and regardless of age, race or medical history many can be potential donors.
