Organ Donation T-Shirt
We believe in the power and benefit of organ donation at Grand River Hospital and the countless ways it can improve a recipient's life.
As our population ages, the need for organ and tissue donations keep increasing. In Canada, as of December 31, 2019:
- 3,014 organs were transplanted
- 249 people died waiting for an organ transplant
- over 4,300 people were waiting for organ transplants
In the past 10 years, the number of people who have donated their organs after they have died has gone up by 42%. The number of people needing a transplant has also gone up in that time.
