DonateLife Week – July 29th to August 5th 2018
DonateLife week is part of the Australians Governments program to increase the organ and tissue donation/transplantation outcomes. The aim is to encourage all Australians to register their organ donation decision and to encourage Australians to have an active conversation with their loved ones about what their decisions are.
Did you know that 90% of families agree to organ donation when a previous discussion was had with family and loved ones, compared to just 52% when family were not aware of their loved ones wishes.
More than 1400 Australians are currently on wait lists for life-saving or life-transforming transplants.
This information and much more can be found on the DonateLife website. You can see stories from those receiving donations, facts about the process of donating and many educational resources.
Are you willing to one day save someone’s life by donating your organs or tissue? Have you discussed these wishes with you family and friends? If the answer to these questions is YES – register with DonateLife.
