Local Doctors Push For Organ Donations During National Donate Life Month

"Logan made it clear previously that he signed his donor card as soon as he turned 21", Boulet's family told Global News.

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

After speaking with Ms. Jackson, I was joined in the studio by Qiana Crenshaw and Ashley Panahagahi students at Clark-Atlanta University who participated in the LifeLink Foundation Annual Battle for Life Campus Challenge with CAU won past year by registering 200 people to become organ donors.

Six people are set to benefit from organ transplants following Boulet's death, including those needing a new heart and lungs.

Logan Boulet, pictured in his Humboldt Broncos hockey kit, was one of 15 people who died in the bus crash in Canada.

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

In February, NHS experts warned "opt-in" organ donation will not necessarily result in more donors. As part of the ceremony, a special organ donation flag will be raised. "The organs and tissues of youngsters are recommended for transplant", he said.

"Logan actually acted, he did not procrastinate - he is truly a hero".

Doctors say Mason will need a liver transplant at some point in his life because of a rare childhood disease, Vanderhart said, and organ donations like Boulet's mean "the world" to many other families in similar positions.

She said many people put off registration because they don't want to think about how this issue could affect them, but she hopes Boulet's example will jolt Canadians into signing up.

"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.

Sally Johnson, director of organ donation and transplantation at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: "I am so grateful to all those families who have chosen to help others at a time of personal tragedy".
