Life Alaska Donor Services is the tissue donation organization serving the state of Alaska, offering the option of donation to families who have suffered a death in Alaska. Life Alaska was established in 1991 as the state's tissue donation program. Since that time, Life Alaska has had many donors and has supplied thousands of tissues for transplantation to Alaskan patients. Life Alaska works in partnership with the federally designated Organ Procurement Organization in Washington (LifeCenter Northwest) to provide education on tissue and organ donation throughout the state. Tissue donations have taken place across the state, from Barrow to Ketchikan.
