Be a Donor Month has Niagara officials asking you to take 2 mins to make sure you are registered
If you think you are an organ donor, you may be wrong.
Up to 1.8 Million Ontarians mistakenly believe they are registered organ and tissue donors.
That’s why this month (April) – Be A Donor Month -- Niagara Health and Trillium Gift of Life Network are asking you to check your registration status.
President of the Trillium Gift of Life Network Ronnie Gavsie tells CKTB it is easy to check if you are a registered donor.
She says you can go to www.beadonor.ca --and that all you need is 2 minutes, and your health card.
Gavsie says every three days, someone in Ontario dies waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant.
She points out that 15-hundred people are on a waitlist for an organ today.
Larry, Tom McConnell, Betty Lou Souter, and the gang announce this year's totals and hand out a big thank you.
Larry talks with the St. Catharines Standard reporter who broke this story.
