From the Paper:

"While many people think that a person can only donate organs after they die, this is not true. In 2002, one-fourth of all transplants performed in the United States were with organs donated by a living person (Gift of Life Trust Fund, 2006). A person has the ability to donate one kidney and live a normal life with the remaining healthy kidney. Also, in some situations, a portion of a liver, lung or pancreas may be donated. Blood, bone and bone marrow may also be donated by a living person. Just one pint of blood can help save four individual lives."
