President’s Message

To All Canadians,

We would like to thank you all for taking the time to read this letter. The Canadian Transplant Society’s mission is to help the thousands of people in Canada who are right now waiting for transplant organs.  Our aim is to raise awareness about this life-or-death matter.  This is a photograph of my wife Lise in a coma, as she waited in 2009 for a liver to become available.  Like others in a similar situation, Lise spent years on a liver transplant list, her health deteriorating daily.  When she fell into a coma, we were told to expect the worst.  Miraculously, when she had no more than a day to live, a liver was found.  Today Lise is happy and recovering, looking forward to emerging from her long years of illness. It was this experience that led me to start this charity. With your help, the Canadian Transplant Society can help people like Lise to live their lives.

We enhance the productivity through our Drives and Awareness Program. Family members often veto a potential relative’s desire to donate an organ because it was never openly discussed.

We want to supply state-of-the-art organ transportation units to provincial hospitals and agencies which preserve an organ longer.

Moreover, we educate the public about the many possible benefits to be had through transplant procedures.  Today, transplants can

  • End cornea blindness
  • Help burn victims recover
  • Remove the need for long-time dialysis
  • Cure diabetes
  • Prevent amputations
  • Repair Childhood heart problems
  • Assist in heart bypass surgery
  • Correct birth defects
  • Replace cystic fibrosis diseased lungs with healthy ones
  • Replace disfigured facial accident victims with a new cosmetic solution

THE CANADIAN TRANSPLANT SOCIETY IS NOT TRYING TO FIND CURES – THE CURES ALREADY EXIST.  YOUR INVOLVEMENT WILL HELP BRING PROVEN CURES TO PEOPLE WHO DESPERATELY NEED THEM.

PLEASE REGISTER YOUR CONSENT, YOU”LL BE GLAD YOU DID.

Thank you and remember

 ORGAN DONOR RECIPIENTS ARE “GIFTED”

Sincerely,

James W Breckenridge
