September is the month dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of organ donation. In Tocantins, health has a program focused on the September Green campaign.

“What motivated us to make the donation was to see God’s miracle in other people’s lives through it.” This is the account of Elias Ricardo Pontes da Silva, Tacyelle’s husband, who said yes to his partner’s organ donation in April of this year.

According to Ellias Ricardo da Silva, after organ donation, several people were touched and joined the act. “Tacyelle was very kind, always attentive to the needs of others and wanting to help, that’s what gave us strength”. After the family said yes, five organs were collected, which benefited people waiting on the national transplant waiting list.

“Organ donation is a noble act on the part of the family. With yes, lives are saved and transformed. I emphasize the importance of communicating the family about being a donor. Let your family know and help save lives!” says Suziane Aguiar Crateús Vilela, responsible for the Tocantins Transplant Center.
