“Being a living organ donor, or donating your organs after you die, can help save lives and improve quality of life. Registering with the BC Transplant Organ Registry is the best way to record your decisions to be an organ donor, and ensures that health care providers in every hospital in British Columbia have access to your confidential donor information. For information on organ transplants in B.C., visit BC Transplant.” (via HealthLinkBC)
