Have you had the organ donation chat?

IT MAY be as simple as a conversation over coffee or at the dinner table.

Whatever the timing or the setting, the Organ and Tissue Authority is urging Australians to have a talk with their family members.

According to DonateLife, one organ and tissue donor can transform the lives of 10 or more people.
