"Dying to Live" - join us for the Premiere of this fabulous film highlighting organ transplant in Australia
The documentary film DYING TO LIVE reveals deep beneath the complex world of organ and tissue transplantation and the heart-wrenching stories of real people awaiting life-saving organs in Australia. Why must they wait for so long? Are changes in policy required – or shifts in perception? Or is it as simple as signing up and having the conversation with loved ones? Why do we avoid the topic of death? What does it take to support a desperate family member running out of time as they hope for a stranger’s generosity? How difficult is it to consider the death of a loved one as a chance at life for someone else? And how much love and understanding does it take to make the compassionate decision to register as a physical philanthropist?

The Heart & Lung Transplant Foundation WA are proud to co-host the Premiere of the screening of this very special film.

When: Friday 26th October 6.30pm sharp
Where: Hoyts Millenium, Fremantle
Tickets: $22 ea - to purchase https://tickets.demand.film/event/6032mrnanEBO
