LIVE ON: The Transplant Campaign

More than ever, patients need life-saving transplants to survive. They need new treatments and cures. They need our help to LIVE ON.

Diabetes, heart failure, liver cancer, kidney disease and lung disease are just a few of the chronic illnesses that disrupt the lives of millions of Canadians and their families. For many, the organ damage they cause is irreversible and a transplant becomes the only hope for a second chance at life.

The economic and societal burdens of these diseases are monumental. As our population ages and lives longer, the urgent need to stop them before they cause permanent damage will only intensify.

The Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital is one of the top five transplant programs in the world and home to the largest and most successful transplant program in North America. Its rich history of pioneering world-first discoveries has helped to save countless lives here and around the world.

The complexity of the Transplant Program’s work allows its world-leading team to understand organs and organ disease like no one else can.

And so we believe the Transplant Program holds the key finding life-saving treatments and cures for some of the most devastating chronic diseases.

That’s why we’re raising $100 million to build the future of transplantation and continue to help patients LIVE ON. With your support, we will help the Transplant Program generate new knowledge through research and recruit new talent to work towards a world with no more chronic disease.
