Diagnosed when he was still in school, Erik Robichaud was doing well until this past year when things took a dramatic turn for the worse. His health is deteriorating and only a liver donor can help while he is still healthy enough for the surgery.
Many were touched by his story and we are hoping to spread a little Christmas cheer to Erik and his family while raising awareness about his need for a living liver donor.
Watch as we surprise the family with an experience they will never forget.
Our sincerest thanks to the people at BESTECH for not only providing a wonderful getaway for the Robichaud family, but for also helping us raise awareness about the importance of organ donation.
Organ donations don’t just positively impact the life of the person who receives them – they also bring purpose to the family of the donor, with a gift of life that keeps giving.
A two-minute Act of Kindness can save up to eight lives. Becoming an organ or tissue donor is easy. Register at BeADonor.ca/campaign/BESTECH.
To become a donor for Erik:
- You must have blood type B or O
- Be similar height/body size; Erik is 5-7
- Be in good health
