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.
The Power2Save initiative reaches thousands of recipient families, the medical community, individual advocates and registered donors. Companies who support Power2Save programming allow AST to continue to educate the public on the importance of funding transplant research, donating organs and advocating for recipient health.
