Each time I switchon the news there’s a report of another horrific vehical accident, each day accidents happen leaving another body mamed and damaged. To some extent we’re lucky in this day and age as medicine and medical procedures are evolving, curing many diseases, more and more body parts including bone tissue, eyes, organs , limbs the list goes on, but without replacement parts these miricle or gifts of life are impossible. I worry there is not enough awareness surrounding organ and tissue donation. Every Australian family needs to discuss and know each others decision about organ and tissue donation. It’s a discussion that is difficult to have at the time of a loved ones death especially an unexpected tragerty so best to discuss the subject sooner than later as if the situation arrises your family or close friends will be asked to confirm or make a decision. It’s as simple as going to humanservices.gov.au/organdonor or call 1800777203, it costs you nothing but could be worth more than you’ll ever know to the person you help.

  • I am proud to say I’m on the organ donor register. I don’t see the point of taking good bits with you to rot if they can help someone live a life

  • Both my husband and I have been organ donors for many years. One of our friends has had two new kidneys to keep her alive and another friend recently had a double lung transplant. It is amazing what medicine can do now, but they still need those donors. Thank you for bringing it to the fore once again.

  • I am a supporter of organ donation, my son will more then likely need a heart transplant in his 20’s. His only 5 and we dont know what will happen in the mean time. So i thank you for helping spread word about organ donation!!! Donations save many lives.
