Every three days, someone dies in Ontario because the life-saving organ transplant they need is not available. Of the 4, 500 Canadians on the transplant waiting list in Canada, 77% are waiting for a kidney. Increasing awareness of organ and tissue donation is one of the cornerstones of The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s mission. That’s why we’re asking you to share the importance of organ donation with your friends, family, and colleagues. Talk to your loved ones about organ donation, and ensure they have registered their choice. You can register your choice in just two minutes. When one organ donor can save up to eight lives, registering may be the greatest gift you ever give.
