Astellas and Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network Join Forces to Raise Awareness of Need for More Organ Donors in Chicago
Date:4/19/2013

NORTHBROOK, Ill., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Astellas Pharma US, Inc. ("Astellas"), a U.S. subsidiary of Tokyo-based Astellas Pharma Inc. (Tokyo: 4503), and Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network, a not-for-profit organ procurement organization that coordinates organ and tissue donation and provides public education on donation in Illinois and northwest Indiana, have collaborated to raise awareness of the need for more organ donors in the city of Chicago. As part of the efforts, Mayor Rahm Emanuel signed a proclamation declaring today, April 19, Organ Donation Awareness Day in the city of Chicago. Astellas and Gift of Hope are encouraging the Chicago community to learn more about organ donation, and register their decision to donate.

"We're proud to partner with Astellas in building a community of support around organ donation awareness and the need for more donors," said David Bosch , Director of Communications and Legislative Affairs at Gift of Hope. "The decision to be an organ donor gives hope to many people awaiting a second chance."

Currently there are more than 117,000 people in the U.S. awaiting an organ transplant – including more than 5,000 people in Illinois. Each year, more than 28,000 Americans receive a donated organ, but sadly, more than 6,500 people die each year waiting for an organ.
