💗TELL YOUR FAMILY YOU WANT TO BE A DONOR HERO!💗

Good Afternoon and Happy Friday!


💗TELL YOUR FAMILY YOU WANT TO BE A DONOR HERO!💗


In just 2 weeks Donatelife Week will be asking all Australians to take a minute to register to become an organ donor.


In Australia even if you never register as an organ donor but if you are one of around 1400 people who die in the right circumstances in a Hospital every year, your family will be asked to give next of kin consent for you to become an organ donor.


So, whether you take the time to register your decision to be an organ donor will come down to whether when your family is at their lowest point, after learning you will never be coming home because your mortal journey has ended, your family will be asked to give the ok for you to be a donor.


We must change the way we communicate the importance of speaking openly with families about organ donation or people will die unnecessarily waiting for organ donation.


If you are going to promote organ donation awareness this DonateLife Week, I am asking for a simple message to be added to all communication you have in the lead up and duration of Donatelife.


💗TELL YOUR FAMILY YOU WANT TO BE A DONOR HERO!💗


Make sure you tell your family if you want to be an organ donor! Even if you register they will have the final say if you become a Donor Hero.


2023 Deceased Donor rates are still behind 2018/19 per COVID rates and despite other countries around the world experiencing record post COVID rates of consent and organ donation, Australia is struggling and still blaming COVID for our low numbers.
