In Canada, at any given time, there are approximately 4,500 people waiting for organ transplants. 76% of them are waiting for a kidney. Lindsay Murray is the Production Manager at Anointment and in 2019 she became a living kidney donor. She shares her story, post-surgery successes, debunks the fear around living organ donation and proves that life with one kidney doesn’t have to slow you down!
You can find more information about the National Kidney Donor Registry at www.kidney.ca . Please remember to sign your donor cards and talk with your family, as in many cases, next-of-kin can still veto your desire to donate your organs and tissue at the time of neurological death unless your wishes are very clear.
