Organ donations reach record levels in B.C. during 2018

The 502 organ transplants during 2018 in British Columbia is a new record, according to B.C. “It takes an incredible team effort to make organ donation happen,” says Dr. Sean Keenan, B.C. “Once a family selflessly consents to organ donation on behalf of their loved one, upwards of 100 people are initially involved for each organ donor and transplant recipient.” As of Jan. 1 of this year, 669 people are still waiting for an organ transplant in B.C. The group points out that organ donor Logan Boulet, who died in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, helped save the lives of six people.
