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

"A record number of organ donors was seen in the United Kingdom last year, with the number of donors increasing by the most significant margin in 28 years".

Its Director warned, "we are concerned that making a legislative change based on poor evidence risks undermining public trust in the organ donation system, and could have serious consequences for rates of organ donation".

Canada has seen an increase in people who are interested in becoming organ donors after being inspired by one of the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

President and CEO of the Ontario Trillium Gift of Life Network Ronnie Gavsie says they saw the numbers shoot up following the news coming out last Sunday that Boulet was a donor. "You never know when this kind of tragedy could happen to you". "His legacy will go on and on as an example to all Canadians of the importance of thinking about giving the gift of life today".

Johnson says that while the registry has grown, more than 32-hundred people in MI are still on transplantation waiting lists.

"Registering to be a donor is connected to your health card", Cathy Weatherall, a registered nurse and organ and tissue co-ordinator for the TGLN at RVH, said.

This is due to the fact that Ohtani has a unsafe splitter ball in his arsenal, a pitch he used to retire four batters. Ohtani won his big league pitching debut with six strong innings at Oakland one week ago.

"Until it impacts your life directly, people just don't take action", Allen says.

Michelle Vanderhart, a mother of three in Fort MacCleod, Alta., said her two-year-old son Mason is one of the people for whom the decision to register could mean the difference between life and death.

April is organ donation month and in Ontario 1,500 people are on the wait-list for a life-saving organ transplant.

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

"The only way to save these people is for people like you and me and our family members to donate organs", said Dr. James Eason, "... and that can be either after death with your family's consent or it can be while your still alive with a living kidney or a living liver donation". He had made it known to his family that this was his wish, according to Langevin.
