The Oxford County Life Donation Awareness Association was formed in 2011 and is made up of organ and tissue recipients and their families as well as donor family members. The members of the group are focused on raising awareness of how organ donation saves lives by creating opportunities to share their personal experiences. We were inspired to create this page in honour of the people in our community whose lives have been touched by organ and tissue donation. In Ontario there are over 1,500 people waiting for a life-saving organ transplant but less than 25% of Ontarians have registered their consent to be donors. We do not want to see any more lives lost because there is a lack of organ donors. We are asking every member of our organization to register their consent at beadonor.ca, and to ask their friends and family to register as well. It takes only two minutes to register, but could one day save up to 8 lives and enhance 75 more through tissue donation.
