Becoming an Organ Donor
Did you know?
- Although more young people are discussing organ and tissue donation, one in two young people don't know their family members' donation wishes.
- 40% of young people are unaware that one day they could be asked to confirm the donation wishes of a family member, should the situation arise.
Getting all the information about Organ and Tissue Donation can mean not only do you make a decision that suits you, but you will also get all the information you need to talk to your family members about this wish. You may also like to start a discussion with your family about their wishes, making such a decision about whether to donate a loved ones tissue and organs during a very sad time is much easier if you already know their wishes.
Here at TINO we are very passionate about Organ Donation, our new topic page gives you information about becoming an organ donor, it also shares some very amazing videos and stories for those who have had their lives saved by a hero donor, or the families who have consented to a loved one becoming a donor.
Take some time to explore the page, and if becoming an organ donor is something you want to do, act today visitÂ Australian Organ Donor Register (www.medicareaustralia.gov.au) today and sign up, and have that all import discussion with you loved ones.
