This is Lars-Ola Bligård, he is a researcher at Chalmers University of Technology.
Thank you Lars-Ola for promoting organ donation! All people working on the RECYCLE ME movement are volunteers, working in their free time.

An approximate estimation of how many breaths you take in a lifetime is 500 million. The lungs are complex organs, taking oxygen from the air and releasing the carbon dioxide we don´t need.
It is possible to live with only half of your lungs, but not without both. Therefore it was an important step when the first lung transplant was performed in 1963 and later in the 80ies they developed medications etc. that increased the success rate. As of today, doctors have not found a substitute for these complex organs and are depending on organ donors.

Don´t hold your breath about organ donation, make your wishes known!

This is Isabell Lindell Warensce posing for organ donation by wearing the RECYCLE ME LIFE silver liver! In the photo is also her daughter Lou, almost 5 months old, so cute! Thank you Isabell for participating in the RECYCLE ME movement for organ donation!

Isabell is a wife and a mother, when she is not on maternity leave she works as a social worker in an acute home for families and children ages 1-12.

The human liver is incredible with the ability to regenerate and regrow to full size after donating a small part of the giver´s liver!

“Weighing in at around 3 pounds, the liver is the body’s second largest organ; only the skin is larger and heavier. The liver performs many essential functions related to digestion, metabolism, immunity, and the storage of nutrients within the body. These functions make the liver a vital organ without which the tissues of the body would quickly die from lack of energy and nutrients. Fortunately, the liver has an incredible capacity for regeneration of dead or damaged tissues; it is capable of growing as quickly as a cancerous tumor to restore its normal size and function.” Text from
While views of organ donation are positive there is a large gap between the numbers of registered donors compared to those awaiting organ donations on a global level.
So remember; make your wishes known, your decision can save lives!
