    Anything at all to support that?

    What I found:

    90% of Americans say they support donation, but only 30% know the essential steps to take to be a donor.

    Donate Life America

    Would seem a lack of knowledge and not support or willingness is the larger problem.

    If a person needs a transplant they are most likely very sick and unemployable. How does any one expect them to pay for insurance much less the cost of a transplant?

    Good question.
