How one

can save


New Mexico Donor Services’ mission is to save and improve lives through organ, eye and tissue donation. As a nonprofit organ procurement organization (OPO), we connect lifesaving gifts to patients who need them most. NMDS serves more than 2 million people in New Mexico.

Our Stories

“Just being able to breathe on your own, it’s amazing because there was time I couldn’t.”

“Because of my transplant, I can do everything that I want to do.”

“The last thing he requested was for me to accept the gift of life from him.”
