Tanis Mitchell and her daughter Lukah
Just before her first birthday, doctors discovered a benign, grapefruit-sized tumor in Lukah’s abdomen. Complications arose following the resection of the tumor, which caused Lu to require a multi-organ transplant.
In December of 2019, Aimee’s 12 year old son Luke passed away unexpectedly following an accident in their family home. Aimee and her husband Kevin made the choice to donate Luke’s organs, and have started The Green Heart Project to honor his legacy.
Like our son Walt, Amy was diagnosed with biliary atresia as a newborn. She beat all the odds and managed to keep her native liver well into adulthood, which is very rare. She had her transplant at the end of 2017 and has become a vocal advocate for organ donation.
At the age of 21, Kelsey was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. Despite an aggressive treatment plan, her disease progressed quickly and a short 3 years later she received a double lung and heart transplant.
Toby and Bernie Boulet
On April 6th, 2018, Toby and Bernie’s son Logan was involved in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. On April 7th, the Boulet’s made the choice to donate Logan’s organs, saving 6 lives and inspiring over 150000 Canadians to register as organ donors. This is also known as The Logan Boulet Effect and we celebrate Logan’s heroism every year on April 7th, aka Green Shirt Day.
Leslie and Connor Gould
In November of 2018, our six week old son Walt was diagnosed with a rare paediatric liver disease called biliary atresia. He had surgery the same day to restore bile flow, but will one day require a life-saving liver transplant. Needless to say, we have become very passionate about organ donation.
