Organ & Tissue Transplants: Nicholas’ Story

Right now there are over 100,000 people on the waiting list for transplants. On average only 77 people a day actually receive a transplant. A new organ or tissue can save someone’s life, and anyone can be a donor.

At just seven years old Nicholas Green became one of the world’s most famous organ donors. October 1 marks the 15th anniversary of Nicholas’ death and his family’s decision to donate his organs and corneas.

Nicholas’ Story

Nicholas was tragically killed by highway robbers in 1994 while vacationing in Italy with his family. His parents decided to donate his organs and corneas to seven Italians waiting for transplants, four of them teens. Without the transplants two would be blind and most, if not all the others, would not have survived.

October 1 marks the 15th anniversary of Nicholas’ death and donation and organ donations are at the front and center in medicine. Transplantation has become the treatment of choice as Nicholas’ story continues to inspire and educate people about organ and tissue donation.

How Often Does Your Family Exercise?

  • All the time - we're a totally fit family.
  • We exercise at least once a week - but we could do more.
  • Not every often - maybe once a month.
  • Never. We're a family of couch potatoes.
