Bone and tissue donor request
NEDLANDS-BASED PlusLife, Perth’s bone and tissue bank, is calling for donors, recipients and donor families to tell their stories to help raise awareness about the benefits of tissue and bone donations.
PlusLife managing director Anne Cowie said one tissue donor could improve the wellbeing, sight and mobility of up to 60 people. Ms Cowie said many people did not realise tissue donation was even possible.
Donor Families Australia will host a Thank You Day picnic to honour organ and tissue donors and their families at Sir James Mitchell Park, South Perth on Sunday, November 20, from 11.30am-3pm.
