Organ Donation Awareness Campaign

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.

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.
