Website Signs Up 5,000 Organ Donors in Three Weeks

A newly-launched website to register Manitoba organ donors has hit the 5,000 mark.

SignUpForLife.ca went live on April 23 to make it easier for Manitobans to register their intent to be organ and tissue donors.

“5,000 registered is a terrific start, and I’m confident that the drive will continue to take us higher so ultimately more lives can be saved through organ donation,” said Dr. Brendan McCarthy, medical director for Transplant Manitoba’s Gift of Life program.

Transplant Manitoba has a goal of 100,000 registrations by this time next year.
