Organ donations soar following tragic bus crash in Saskatchewan

Following Humboldt Broncos bus crash, BC sees sixfold increase in organ donor registrations

The Canadian Transplant Society (CTS) says it has seen a "huge" increase in the number of young people signing up as organ donors.

"You can help Tennova save lives by signing up to be an organ donor through the state registry website".

According to Gavsie, on that day Trillium saw a "dramatic uptick" in registrations in Ontario - 182 compared to 30 on the previous Sunday.

By giving consent for organ donation, in death, a donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and enhance up to 75 others through tissue donation.

You can go to www.giftoflife.on.ca to find out more about signing up.

I ask her who makes a good organ donor and why it's important for more African Americans to become donors.

In British Columbia, from Friday evening as donors have registered 363 man, as the representative of the BC Transplant said by e-mail.

She thinks the conversation around organ donations should begin in schools. "The organs and tissues of youngsters are recommended for transplant", he said.

The event, which was put on by Trillium Gift of Life Network - the provincial body responsible for organ donation in Ontario - consisted of organ transplant recipients holding doors for rush hour commuters and handing out toy hearts as an act of kindness, or a way to "pay it forward", Farinha explains.

"It's such an easy thing that everyone can try to do to help", Stokke, 25, said in a phone interview.

Approximately every 10 minutes, a patient is added to the national organ transplant waiting list.

"What makes Logan such a hero is that he actually took action", Gavsie said.

Good intentions are not enough to help the 4,500 people in Canada who now need a life-saving organ transplant, Gavsie said.

They want to remind people it only takes one person to save a life.

"The decision to donate organs is a powerful gift, made more poignant because it often happens at an incredibly hard time", said Alberta Deputy Premier and Minister of Health Sarah Hoffman.

Officials in Canada said online registration to become organ donators has surged over the past few days, with many taking to social media to personally name Boulet as the reason they made the decision.
