Supporting the community
Australia has between 1500 and 1700 people of all ages waiting for a transplant at any point and, for many, their only chance of survival is a generous family donating their loved one's organs.
Registering on the Australian Organ Donor Register (AODR) is important because it leaves your family in no doubt of your decision to save lives as an organ and tissue donor.
In 2015, 91% of families agreed to donation proceeding where their loved one was a registered donor. This compares to just 52% of families that agreed to donation where their loved one was not a registered donor and the family had no prior knowledge of their loved one's wishes.
Don't wait. If you are willing to save lives as an organ and tissue donor, join the AODR online today, and discuss your decision with your family and friends. To find out how to register online visit donatelife.gov.au [Link deliberately removed].
