Please fill out the form to register as an organ and tissue donor. By registering as a donor you consent to donate your organs and tissues at the time of your death. Organs and tissues will be recovered for the purpose of transplantation, however, in the event a donated organ or tissue cannot be used for transplant, an effort will be made to use the donation for research.

The Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency’s (MORA) Spero Awards recognize community and hospital partners that make organ, eye, and tissue donation a reality for those in need of life-saving and healing transplants. The word Spero is Latin for “hope,” chosen to reflect the hope made possible through the Gift of Life.
“While the last year has been unprecedented, we want to highlight and thank our healthcare heroes for their dedication to honoring the wishes of donors and donor families even during a pandemic, says Kevin Stump, MORA CEO. “Their amazing work translates into miracles for patients and their loved ones waiting on a second chance at life. On behalf of MORA and the Donate Life community, we say, ‘Thank you’.”
