United Kingdom organ donation numbers hit record levels in 2017-18

Over 15,000 people are on the wait list for a transplant in Ontario, with, on average, one person dying every three days "just waiting", said Gavsie.

"A record number of organ donors was seen in the United Kingdom last year, with the number of donors increasing by the most significant margin in 28 years".

Doctors say Mason will need a liver transplant at some point in his life because of a rare childhood disease, Vanderhart said, and organ donations like Boulet's mean "the world" to many other families in similar positions.

"The only way to save these people is for people like you and me and our family members to donate organs", said Dr. James Eason, "... and that can be either after death with your family's consent or it can be while your still alive with a living kidney or a living liver donation". "So we've just tried to make it as simple as possible and to let people know how big of an impact they can have by taking that few seconds to register themselves".

According to figures from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), the rate of deceased organ donation in the country has increased by 42 percent since 2007.




Soon, the DMER will also organise a workshop for students who did not undersign the pledge form to donate their organs. But "we still don't have a culture of donation", Gavsie said, adding that 56 per cent of eligible donors are registered in the U.S. "And when that comes up, people want to act".

"It's such an easy thing that everyone can try to do to help", Stokke, 25, said in a phone interview.

The Donate Life Legacy Walk was scheduled to take place on Saturday at Berkley Riverfront Park in Kansas City to help raise awareness, and Green Ribbon Day is scheduled for Friday, April 13. Tissue and eye donors can assist up to 75 people to make their lives better.

"Seven years later it still is very overwhelming", Farinha told CBC Toronto during an organ donor registry awareness event at Dundas subway station on Tuesday morning.
