Free Organ Donation Leaflets
A liver transplant may be the only option for some PSC patients. Sadly, there is a major shortage of organ donors in the UK and the number of people in need for an organ transplant is growing every year. This means that too often people are dying on the waiting list. In fact, three people die everyday on the transplant list in the UK alone. The wait for a liver transplant is extremely terrifying for PSC patients for many reasons but especially because of the unpredictable nature of PSC. The longer somebody is waiting for a transplant, the higher the risks become and the more likely it is that they will not get the transplant they desperately need. PSC Support encourages everyone, whatever their age, to sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register and talk about their organ donation wishes with their friends and family.
You might like to also promote organ donation as part of your message to help raise awareness about joining the Organ Donor Register.
You can get leaflets, posters and other promotional material about organ transplant for free from NHSBT that can be used at your fundraising events.
