HLA tissue typing test is done on the "organ-transplant" patient to check the compatibility of organ with a live donor.

"The increase in donations and transplants is made possible thanks to the generosity of donors and their families".

As April is "Be A Donor Month" the idea for the public outreach was meant to "make a lot more noise" to educate people about the importance of registering as an organ donor, said the organization's president and CEO Ronnie Gavsie.

Manitoba donor physician Dr. Faisal Siddiqui said whenever stories like the Humboldt Broncos bus crash is covered by news media, it sways people who were contemplating donating to actually follow through.

It now has 900 people on the waiting list.

Soon, the DMER will also organise a workshop for students who did not undersign the pledge form to donate their organs.

And according to Midwest Transplant Network's research, 95 percent of people across the US support the concept of organ donation, yet only about 54 percent are registered. Every year, she said the wait list grows, and hundreds of people die without receiving the treatment they need.

Sally Johnson, director of organ donation and transplantation at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: "I am so grateful to all those families who have chosen to help others at a time of personal tragedy". "Each of us has such power to save lives, to soften the grief of our families, to take away from them the burden of not knowing what our wishes are".
