California organ donors hit milestone
OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- California just reached an important milestone when it comes to saving lives -- seven million people have signed up to be organ donors through the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The families of organ donors and people who have received life-saving transplants marked the occasion at the DMV office near the Oakland Coliseum Monday morning.
The state launched the organ and tissue donor registry in 2005. Anyone can help save a life by checking a box when you renew your driver's license or state-issued identification card at the DMV.
