Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

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.
