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

"Logan had made it known, and very clear to his family, that he had signed his organ donor card when he turned 21", Langevin said in a Facebook post. "He is a great hero and one of the nicest people you would have been lucky enough to meet".

New data from NHS Blood and Transplant has revealed that a record number of organ donors was seen during the 2017-18 financial year.

In British Columbia, from Friday evening as donors have registered 363 man, as the representative of the BC Transplant said by e-mail.

According to figures from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), the rate of deceased organ donation in the country has increased by 42 percent since 2007.

A flag raising ceremony was held Tuesday afternoon outside the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute to celebrate "National Donate Life" month.

"There's a sensitivity, even in 2018, about organ donation and transplantation and it needs to be diminished", she said. According to Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN), every three days someone will die without one.

"It's such an easy thing that everyone can try to do to help", Stokke, 25, said in a phone interview.

For the first year ever, more than 1,500 people in the United Kingdom donated their organs after they died, with the number rising by 11 percent over the previous year.

Good intentions are not enough to help the 4,500 people in Canada who now need a life-saving organ transplant, Gavsie said.

Roman Catholic bishop Paul Mason has said plans for an opt-out system "undermine the concept of donation as a gift, and cross the line of what is a reasonable action for the state to take in relation to the individuals within it". "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".
