Donate Life Florida is the non-profit 501(c)3 organization contracted by the State of Florida, Agency for Health Care Administration to create and oversee the state's organ, eye, and tissue donor registry in addition to implementing educational initiatives tailored to increase understanding and support for donation and donor designation.
The Joshua Abbott Organ & Tissue Donor Registry was created in July 2009 to allow Floridians an easy, user-friendly means of joining the state's Registry. Floridians can join the Registry online at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org, when renewing their driver license online, or when obtaining/renewing their license at a local driver license office. Individuals can also request a registration form by calling Donate Life Florida at 1-877-35-SHARE (1-877-357-4273).
Individuals that already have "organ donor" on their licenses are still encouraged to join the new Registry, ensuring their wishes are documented.
Today, more than 100,000 children and adults await lifesaving organ transplants while hundreds of thousands more are in need of tissue transplants. Together, we can make a difference.
