Rise for transplants
Transplants are a common procedure done throughout the past years. Many people need transplants for kidneys, hearts or any other organs. However a major problem is appearing with this. Patients are dealing with extremely long delays to receive a transplant. More than 7,500 patients need transplants and those waiting for hearts are told the wait is up to 3 years or more and for kidneys the wait is delayed even longer. Excess demand is shown greatly through transplants, the head of organ donations mentions that people are still donating but the increase for demand has risen and this is causing more and more people to wait even resulting with some dying. Many officials are trying to advertise more people to sign up to increase their supply and are already seeing great results.
