Jersey Day

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

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.
