Its Important to be an Organ Donor.


This is National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Week.  Local Coordinator Nora Fontaine says the theme this year is the simple fact that You Have the Green Light to Save a Life. She explains in the next ten minutes someone will be added to the organ transplant waiting list.  She says it’ll take you two minutes to register online at signupforlife.ca to be an organ donor.  Fontaine notes when tragedy strikes such as it did for a Humbolt Broncos player’s family it gave them great comfort to honor his memory and to enhance the lives of many recipients by donating his organs.  She adds 99 percent of Canadian support organ donation but only 20 percent have registered so please give the gift of life, sign up and be a donor.


Fontaine adds if you want more information including how to sign up to be a donor go to www.transplantmanitoba.ca and link to www.signupforlife.ca.
