Would you donate your childs organs to help save another child if your child had no brain activity?

My neighbor did; it was a hard choice at first

  • I say yes now, but in the moment I am not sure I could. I would like to think I would make the right choice and help someone else out, but it would be so hard to think about your child torn apart. Bless her for helping others.

  • I would say yes, but I hope I am not in that position--thank your neighbor. She took a loss and made someone else have hope and a better life.

  • I know I would, without a doubt. It wouldn't be an instant choice, I would have to think about it and hold my son. I would want a second and third and maybe fourth opinion, BUT ultimately I know my son would want to help other children who needed him.

  • In a heartbeat. I wouldn't want anyone else to go through the loss of a child if I could prevent it.
