Thousands of Ontarians get a second chance to live life to its fullest each year, thanks to the kindness of people who have donated organs and tissue. However, many more are still waiting for the gift of life. Currently there are 1,500 people in our province waiting for organ transplants. Sadly, every three days, somebody in Ontario dies while on the waiting list. One organ donor can save up to 8 lives, yet just over 30% of Ontarians have registered their consent to donate. Astellas encourages its employees, their families and their friends to consider registering their consent to be donors. Please support Astellas’ proud legacy within the transplant community by showing you care - it only takes two minutes to click on “register now” and sign up to be an organ donor. Talk to your family about your decision to give life. One conversation can make all the difference for the future.
