Sweet, Loyal Dog Follows His Owner To The Hospital, Waits Patiently Outside
This pup will miss its owner, but there's a silver lining to every story. The woman leaving the hospital is one of up to eight people that could have a second chance at a healthy life because of one organ donor. In the U.S., someone is added to the waiting list for an organ transplant every ten minutes. And that list is long; as there are around 120,000 people in desperate need of an organ,an eye or tissue. Sadly, the number of organ donations are far below the nee; in fact, an average of 21 people die each day waiting for transplants. Registering as a donor takes little time and effort, and anyone, no matter their age or medical history, can sign up as a donor.
