The New Brunswick Lung Association encourages you to be an organ donor.
Through our work with our Lung Transplant Support Group, we see first-hand the need for healthy lung specimens in this region. In New Brunswick alone, hundreds of people are waiting for an organ, tissue or ocular transplant. Almost anyone can donate organs, tissue or ocular tissue. Everyone has the opportunity to become an organ donor, no matter your age or health. Organ donation truly is one of the easiest ways to be a hero.
There are two simple steps:
1) Indicate your intent to donate on your Provincial Medicare Card.
You can do this by calling Service New Brunswick at 1-888-762-8600, and select 2 to request your Medicare card be updated.
Your Medicare card will clearly display a D after you have indicated your wish to be an organ donor. You may change or withdraw your consent to donate at any time.
2) Inform those closest to you of your intent to donate your organs.
