For people facing terminal organ failure, organ donation is vital, their only chance for survival or for a better quality of life. Without donations, there can be no transplants.
Organ donation embodies the values of solidarity, generosity and altruism. And Quebecers are a generous people.
Organ donation not only benefits transplant recipients and their loved ones, it also provides donors’ family and friends with a certain amount of comfort.
Science is constantly pushing the boundaries of possibility. The ethics of donation and transplantation contribute to changing societal norms.
