Be a donor. Talk to your family.
This year, an awareness campaign is highlighting three Saskatchewan families whose prayers for an organ transplant were answered.
These stories describe the pressing need for a matching donor, and the relief that came when a matching organ came available. In each case, there is profound appreciation for the donor’s gift of a renewed lease on life.
The campaign was developed by the Ministry of Health, with support from the Saskatchewan Health Authority and with the co-operation of three remarkable families.
National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week
The week of April 22-28 is Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week across Canada (NOTDAW). Find out more about becoming an organ and tissue donor, and talk to your family about your wishes.
