Camille is a double lung transplant recipient and does a lot in the community to support other transplant patients and their families. She is Vice President of the Heart and Lung Transplant Trust of Victoria (HLTTV) - a trust that supports transplant patients and their families - removing the financial stress just a little. She has created a calendar featuring her dog Wally and other dogs of transplant recipients to raise funds for the HLTTV - buy it here.
Camille (and everyone that knows her) is so thankful to her donor and their family for giving her the gift of life.
From the Donate Life website:
"Sunday 19 November 2017 is DonateLife Thank You Day – a national day dedicated to honouring all organ and tissue donors and their families.
Help us promote awareness of the day in your workplace, your school and your community. The Thank You Day Supporter Kit has a range of ideas and resources to get you started – including posters to download and display, online banners and social media content. Download your Supporter Kit today
Each year, living and deceased donors and their families save and transform the lives of thousands of Australians through the gift of organ and tissue donation.
Thank You Day is a time for the community to come together and say ‘thank you’ to all donors and their families, whose stories inspire us to register at donatelife.gov.au and discuss our donation decisions.
It’s also an opportunity to acknowledge our donation and transplantation specialists, joined by many other health professionals, who care for our donors, recipients and their families."
Please consider becoming an organ and tissue donor, and register your decision on the Donate Life website. Don't forget to tell your loved ones of your wishes to be a donor.
