April is “Be A Donor” Month and now is the perfect time for residents to consider registering themselves for organ donation.
There are 4585 Canadians waiting for an organ donation and while many Canadians qualify for the organ donation program, only 17% of Canadians become donors when they die.
1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives and enhance the lives of 75 others through tissue donation.
I highly encourage all residents to review the following infographic poster below and visit
