Logan Boulet, Humboldt Broncos Bus Crash Inspire Surge in Organ Donor Registration

"These are figures that would make any country in the world proud", the organisation's Sally Johnson said, before adding that more donors are still needed.

The godfather Boleta Neil Langevin issued a statement on behalf of his family, stating that the brigade surgeons of Alberta went to the hospital of Saskatoon for the procedure of organ transplantation on Sunday morning, April 8. "These actions alone give voice to the selfless and benevolent nature Logan possessed in life for others".

Boulet signed an organ donor card upon turning 21, just weeks ago. "He is a great hero and one of the nicest people you would have been lucky enough to meet". And although local registration rates are higher, with 72 percent of adults in Kansas and 75 percent of adults in Missouri registered as organ donors, the demand still far exceeds the supply.

When a person renews their license or health card at Service Ontario, they should be given the option to become an organ donor, but they can also register or check their donor status at BeADonor.ca.

In British Columbia, 363 people have registered their decisions online since Friday evening, a BC Transplant spokesperson said in an email, compared to 59 registrations over the weekend of March 24 and 25, which is more typical.

We speak about the distrust and myths around organ donation especially in the African-American community which has been abused by the medical establishment for many years. According to Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN), every three days someone will die without one.

Pssst: This Is How We Know The Royal Baby Is Coming Soon
If the Royal Baby is born April 21, the child will share a birthday with the Queen, who turns a spry 92 this year. According to reports, Kate will once again be cared for by royal doctors Guy Thorpe-Beeston and Alan Farthing .

"The only thing that gets in the way is procrastination", she said.

April is Donate Life Month, and today is Donate Life Day, with a push to encourage organ donations.

"I want everyone out there to put their name on the donor list because you can save so many people's lives if you just do that", an emotional Susan Procack told CTV Toronto.

Good intentions are not enough to help the 4,500 people in Canada who now need a life-saving organ transplant, Gavsie said.

"There can be a gift in this sorrowful time", Gavsie said.
