Transplant Advocate Association has a mission to inform the public about the need and benefits of organ and tissue donation. Every 3 days an Ontario resident dies because a life-saving organ was not available. More than 1500 people are on a wait list for a transplant. People are only listed for transplantation when there isn't any other option. Their future depends on the kindness of an organ donor. The good news is that when organs are donated the transplant recipients can go on to live a healthy productive life. We have a member who has lived 27 years with a transplanted kidney, another is living well more than 22 years following a heart transplant, another has returned to full time work a at responsible position following a lung transplant. You have the potential to save up to 8 lives and improve lives for 75 others by registering your consent to be an organ and tissue donor. Tell your family about your decision. Register now to give the gift of life!
