Some 47% of Sarnia residents are registered organ donors, which is well above the provincial average of 30%, according to the Trillium Gift of Life Network.

Organ donations in Ontario increased by 30% last year with a record 1,302 people receiving transplants. It was the third straight year that more people gave the gift of life.

Currently, there are 13 Sarnians waiting for a medically urgent organ transplant, the network said.
