Welcome to our new website.
Tim Lamberton and I for some time knew there was a need here in Canberra (Australia) where recipients, donor families, those waiting for a transplant, friends and families could all get together and socialise. To enjoy an activity or share a drink over a meal and chat with like-minded people without feeling pressured to do so.
We are encouraged by the response to date and as recipients ourselves desire to help others who are faced with the news of “you need a transplant” or “is your loved one a registered organ donor”.
We understand the degree of stress and anxiety to be told you will die if you don’t receive a transplant and could only imagine the grief of being told your loved one is brain dead.
Sometimes it helps just to talk to someone who has gone through what you are currently experiencing.
Whilst being advocates for Organ and Tissue Donation, we are also about living life to the full and being there for others, while always being mindful of the wonderful, unselfish gift of life that we have been given.
We feel strongly that as part of the Transplant and Organ Donation sector, there is nothing more rewarding than pulling together, helping one another in sad times and celebrating when the times are good.
Please visit our site often and watch it grow with many wonderful, encouraging life changing stories.
