Operation Popcorn says ‘Thank you’

Thanking KBRH hospital staff for its work in supporting organ donation across B.C.

It’s the time of year when organ transplant recipients, living donors, and donor family members thank hospital staff for their work in supporting organ donation across our province. BC Transplant’s annual Operation Popcorn is an opportunity for those whose lives have been saved by organ donation to deliver festive tins of popcorn to staff in intensive care units, emergency departments and operating rooms (ICUs, EDs and ORs) across the province. Operation Popcorn reps (in the black T shirts with the “Live Life Pass it on” Karen Fontaine is from Trail and received a kidney and pancreas about six years ago. Joe Mather is from Castlegar and received a kidney, also about six years ago) were at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital on Monday and pose with ED and ICU staff, physicians and KBRH leadership.
