Adele Orr: Gift Of 8 Campaign

Clicks to Register: 4

My name is Adele, I'm 21 years old and I live in North Bay, Ontario. I have a genetic condition called cystic fibrosis (CF). CF causes my body to build up thick mucus in all of my organs, particularly the lungs. As I get older, my lungs get more and more clogged and it gets harder and harder to breathe. At the moment, I have about 40% of the lung function of a healthy person my size. Almost every person with Cystic Fibrosis will, at some point in their lives, require a lung transplant. While I'm still quite a ways off from being listed, I know that my future will include a transplant.

Organ donation is one of the kindest and most selfless acts a person can do. By registering to be a donor, you are giving hope to myself and everyone on the donor list today. You are telling us that you would help us if you could, and that means more than I could ever put into words. Let your final legacy be that of a hero. Register to donate today.
