Power2Save is on a mission to prove that everyone has the power to save a life by supporting transplant research, advocating for public health, and promoting organ donation. Anyone has the power—whether you are an organ donor, family or friend of someone who needs an organ or has donated one, a medical professional, or an individual or organization who simply believes in making a difference—we all play a part.
