65_RedRoses

For those of you who haven’t seen this documentary, please watch or tape it tonight. 65_RedRoses is about our friend Eva Markvoort’s wait for her first double lung transplant. The movie takes an honest look at what it is like to wait for an organ transplant. (Eva was nothing if not honest. Very, very honest). Unfortunately, Eva experienced chronic rejection and had to be re-listed for transplant. She died waiting on the list on Saturday, March 27th, 2010.

The documentary airs on CBC News Network @ 5:00 tonight. Or, if you want to watch it online, click on the following link:

Please watch it, spread the word, talk to your family and friends about organ donation, and for god’s sake – register to be an organ donor if you haven’t already! It is no longer on your driver’s license or care card. Visit: www.transplant.bc.ca for more info.
