On behalf of ODTI, Dr. Catherine Motherway, Organ Donation Lead, thanked the donors and their families. She said, “it is sometimes hard to convey our gratitude to our donors. The gift of life given during a time of grief and loss is humbling.  The generosity of our donors both living and deceased and their families transforms the lives of our transplant recipients. Organ donation and transplantation saves and changes lives.

Have that conversation with your loved ones and ensure they know you wish to become an organ donor.  There is no greater gift”.
