On Friday the 1st of September, the Round Corner Dental team proudly donned our favourite sports jerseys for the day to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation.
The JERSEY DAY campaign is inspired by the story of the Gremmo family who tragically lost their 13-year-old son Nathan in a traffic accident on Glenhaven Rd in 2015. Six lives were saved through Nathan’s gift of life. His family established this Jersey Day to honour his legacy, and to urge Australians to have those important conversations with family and loved ones and register as an organ donor online.
Around 1,500 Australians are on waiting lists for life-saving organ donations at any one time. One organ donor can save up to 10 lives, and Australia is a world leader for successful transplant outcomes.
Ray Hadley, Turia Pitt, the Wiggles, the Queensland Police Force and even our own Prime Minister have joined the campaign, among countless other schools, businesses and organisations across the country.
Please visit www. donatelife.gov.au to register, and for more information on how you can help save a life.
