Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Organ Donation Talk Ladies and gentlemen, today I am here to share with you my views on organ donation, in the hope that you will take them on board and give someone the ultimate gift after you have left this earth - the gift of life.

Ladies and gentlemen you can help. By donating your vital organs after you have passed away you can save lives. For the more sentimental of you, of the 79,000 patients waiting for a transplant, over 10 per cent of these are children under 18 years of age. So, how can you help?
