Windsor-Essex is a caring community. We are charitable with funds, even in the face of economic challenge. We go above and beyond to offer support and comfort to the vulnerable, the sick, and the less fortunate. Despite these attributes, Ontario’s southern most region remains below the provincial average when it comes to registrations for organ and tissue donation. As of March, 2012, only 18 per cent of citizens in Windsor-Essex have registered their consent online. Many residents may believe the organ donor cards they signed years ago suffice in terms of confirming their consent. However, the only way to ensure your wishes are recognized in the event of your passing is to have your consent registered at beadonor.ca the online database, which ensures that your decision will be made available to your family at the right time. We at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Hospital encourage our community to sign up today at beadonor.ca. It only takes a few minutes to register.
