Young organ donation advocate’s work ‘doesn’t end here’ – Politics – CBC News

Nice to see her back home, and nice to see the results of her public campaign for more organ donations (almost 10-fold spike in new registrations) and more federal funding for transplant research (politicians taking the opportunity to tag on to a winner!).

As always, Hélène Campbell shows a lot of grace:

Campbell described how happy she is to be home and to get back to her pre-transplant life, but said she left many people behind in Toronto who are still on organ donation waiting lists.

“Leaving Toronto has been an amazing joy, it’s been great but I feel like I’ve been rescued from a sinking ship in the sense that I am fortunate that I’m alive here today but the people I met back in Toronto waiting on that list aren’t always so fortunate,” she said.
