April is Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Month. Did you know that 90% of New Brunswickers support organ donation but only 35% are registered donors?

Almost anyone can donate organs, tissue or ocular tissue. No matter your age or health, registering as an Organ & Tissue Donor truly is one of the easiest ways to be a hero.

Through our Lung Transplant Support Group, we see the need for healthy lungs and the life-saving impact of registered donors. Hundreds of New Brunswickers are awaiting transplants.

You can register to become an Organ & Tissue Donor today by simply calling 1-888-762-8600 and requesting to update your Medicare card. Talk to your loved ones about your decision, and know that you can withdraw your consent to donate at any time.
