ORGAN AND TISSUE DONATION CAMPAIGN OFFERS HOPE TO SASKATCHEWAN FAMILIES

The Offer Hope campaign was launched at Saskatoon’s St. Paul’s Hospital to help individuals, families and their communities learn about the importance of talking to their loved ones about organ and tissue donation. Families who have talked about their decision to donate are more likely to honour the wishes of their loved ones should organ and tissue donation be possible after death.

“This campaign is a reminder of the lifesaving and life-enhancing benefits of organ and tissue donation,”Health Minister Dustin Duncan said. “One organ donor can save up to eight lives, and one tissue donor can improve the lives of more than 75 people. Everyone is a potential donor, and supporting donation is something we should all consider.”
