Redefining The Hero

THE CAMPAIGN

There are currently over 1,500 Ontarians waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. This is the only treatment option available to them. There exists a hero in all of us. When you register to become a donor, you let those waiting know that you would help them if you could. It costs $0 and takes less than 2 minutes to register.

BECOME A DONOR. BECOME A HERO.

  • In Ontario, someone dies every 3 days because they did not receive a transplant in time.
  • One organ donor can help up to 8 individuals and one tissue donor can help up to 75 others.
  • Age does not disqualify you from becoming a donor. The oldest organ donor was over 90 years old.
  • Each donor is considered on a case-by-case basis. A long-term or serious illness does not necessarily disqualify you from becoming a donor.
