LIVE it Up! is an annual event that raises both funds for UHN’s Transplant Program as well as awareness of the critical importance of organ donation. The event supports the Jürgen Mummenhoff Memorial Fund in Transplantation, established in 2008 at the Toronto General and Western Hospital Foundation. Although taken from us much too soon, we were so grateful for the extra 15 years that we were given with Jürgen through the gift of life when he received a liver transplant in 1993. He was so grateful to his donor and their family and truly made the best of his gift, enjoying his second chance of life to the fullest.
Since 2009, over $316,000 has been raised to support education initiatives in UHN’s Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital. The largest in North America and one of the top five of its kind in the world, it has a rich history of pioneering world-first discoveries has helped to save countless lives here and around the world. Every day, these surgeons, researchers and health care professionals are giving people suffering from end-stage organ disease a second chance of life. .
