Have you had the organ donation chat?

IT MAY be as simple as a conversation over coffee or at the dinner table.

Whatever the timing or the setting, the Organ and Tissue Authority is urging Australians to have a talk with their family members.

DonateLife week, which runs until March 3, encourages Australians to discover the facts about organ and tissue donation and share their decision with their families.

According to DonateLife, one organ and tissue donor can transform the lives of 10 or more people.
