Help improve the lives of Alphas
Donating to Alpha-1 Canada provides patient support and funds our efforts to educate healthcare providers to advocate for Alpha-1 testing and to promote awareness for this rare genetic disease.
Your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply and you will feel good knowing you have helped change a life.
Plasma donation is critically important and contributes to saving lives. Your plasma will be used to create therapies that treat a variety of conditions and diseases, such as Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.
Sign your organ donor card and share your wishes with your family. One donor can save up to 8 lives through organ donation and enhance the lives of up to 75 more through the gift of tissue. Organ transplantation is another option for Alpha-1 patients with end-stage lung or liver disease.
