To my family and friends, I thought I would celebrate my birthday this year by asking my family and friends to become registered organ and tissue donors. Though many of us believe that organ and tissue donation is a good thing, less than 25% of Ontarians are registered as donors. That number may be even lower depending on where you live. There are about 1,500 people in Ontario who are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant, but they aren't the only ones being affected. Their family members, friends and all those close to them are waiting too. Right along side them. I created this page to encourage all of my family and friends to register their consent to become donors. Please take two minutes and register – you can do it right now, from the link on this page. You can also check to make sure you are registered, if you're not sure. It's a selfless act that could one day save eight lives and enhance 75 more through tissue donation. Thanks, Catherine
