Our Town: 4/26 Guest Bruce Cuthbert

Posted by auroracitizen on April 26, 2012

Our Town has a very special guest on tonight’s show – Mr. Bruce Cuthbert. As this week is Organ and Tissue Donor Week (April 22nd through 29th), we felt it was important to showcase this very important cause.

An organ recipient and tireless advocate on behalf of the cause of organ and tissue donation, Mr. Cuthbert will talk about his experience with and journey through the transplant process – it’s impact not only on himself but on his family, friends and loved ones.  Mr. Cuthbert will also talk about his work with the York Region Gift of Life Association and the Be a Donor campaign ( – and the very real need to increase donor registrations in York Region.

One person dies every three days in Canada as they wait on the transplant list.  Increased donor registrations then is absolutely crucial.  Tune in to Our Town tonight and learn about this issue and the work and experience of one of Aurora’s tireless volunteers – Mr. Bruce Cuthbert.

Our Town airs on Aurora TV – at 7pm, Thursdays. Stay Informed, Stay Involved, because this is Our Town!!
