Thomas Fragman

I am Thomas Fragman and I have been teaching English at CSS des Affluents for 28 years already!

Every year, since the pilot project in 2008, I have presented Chain of Life to my students. What touches me the most when I teach Chain of Life is to see just how interested my students are in the subject of organ donation and how committed they are to sharing their wishes with their families. 
 
In addition, at the end of the unit, my students have the chance to listen to Sylvie Massia and Rene Tapp, a donor family, whose daughter Stephanie's story is at the heart of the Chain of Life.

The Key Links in the Chain of Life

The Key Links in the Chain of Life

The key links in the chain of life are doctors, nurses, transplant recipients, donor families, teachers, students, distinguished climbers, public figures and many others... who join forces to create a movement uniting all those touched directly or indirectly by organ and tissue donation.

        I have been sensitized to the cause of organ donation for a very long time. I even used to be a volunteer for the Fondation Diane-Hébert. 

        When I was asked to carry the Chain of Life flag to the summit of Denali at 6,190 m in 2018, I accepted right away because, simply put, it is important and serious! 
         
        I have remained close to this organisation ever since as I believe in its mission to educate young people in order to ensure that collectively, we can move on, while all the while fulfilling the many requests of recipients. That's what the chain of life is all about!

        So come on, come join me in climbing Ski Montcalm on October 16!

        Mountain Climbing and Waiting for a Transplant: What a Parallel!

        Participants in the Chain of Life Challenge carry the flag to the top of a mountain in their region.

        Mountain Climbing and Waiting for a Transplant: What a Parallel!

        Waiting for a transplant is a bit like climbing a mountain. Both require preparation, fortitude, determination, perseverance and, most of all, support — the climber needs strong climbing partners and the person waiting for an organ needs a reliable support network. Both are real challenges. This is why the mountain has become one of the symbols associated with Chain of Life.

        By planting the Chain of Life flag at the top of a mountain, we are not only showing our solidarity for organ and tissue donation, but we are also helping send a message of hope to all those waiting for a transplant in Quebec and elsewhere.

        Thank you to our partners!
