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.

Donor memorial

Donation changes lives. We honor all donor heroes who made lifesaving and changing gifts. Please take a moment to view our memorial wall. We also encourage you to share a memorial tribute honoring your special donor hero. It may give hope to those waiting and inspire others to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. Thank you for supporting your loved one’s decision to save lives.

Conscientious, kind, and loving, Addison’s name, in the hearts of all those he touched will forever remain.
