Today is “Slice of Life Tuesday” – the writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”
Last week my husband and I made one of our regular trips to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton, for one of the many doctor visits my hubby must go to. last week was also the 11th anniversary of his kidney transplant.
As we were leaving, we stopped by the display that advertised the Organ and Tissue Donation awareness campaign the hospital was running.
Their theme: “Be a Hero. Be a Donor”
I really feel that being a donor is crucial – that it should be an opt-out on your license, not an opt-in.
Having seen first-hand what dialysis is like, and how it effects your loved one, I urge people to register as a donor. As a donor, you can save up to 8 lives. What a gift to families who’s loved ones are suffering.
