Currently, more than 1,500 people in Ontario are waiting for an organ transplant, and every three days someone dies waiting for their life-saving gift. Though most of us believe that organ donation is a good thing, only a quarter of us are registered donors.

Everyone is a potential organ and tissue donor with the ability to save up to eight lives.

Hear how your life-saving gift could make a lasting impact beyond your lifetime at an upcoming panel discussion hosted in partnership with the Islamic Foundation of Toronto.
