If you are suffering from severe lung disease, a lung transplant may be your last treatment option to survive. A lung transplant can offer hope, but it can be a complex process that comes with health risks. 

Become an Organ Donor

You could save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of up to fifty people by donating your organs. Is that not a gift worth talking to your loved ones about?

For those living with chronic lung disease and struggling to breathe, a lung transplant may be the only treatment option available to them to survive and reclaim their quality of life.

We are asking everyone to think about becoming an organ donor and to share your wishes with your loved ones, so they are able to honour and act on your gift when it is time to do so.

To become an organ donor:

  • Have a conversation with your family and loved ones about becoming an organ donor.
  • Make your explicit wishes known, help your loved ones understand your decision, and ask for their agreement that they will honor your wishes.
  • Make your wishes known in writing and through your legal Will.
