The time is coming up to renew my license. I've been considering becoming an organ donor but ya know that whole thing about 'they won't bother to save you' if you are a donor. (Which I DON'T actually believe. My mom and I were discussing that myth when we were discussing my changing my status) What are your thoughts on that? Are you a donor?

I am a donor and that whole "they won't try to save you" thing is a myth.

Yep. I like the thought that my death can bring life to another.

 I am a donor. I certainly won;t be needing my parts where I am going (If I 'go").

And I never heard of such a thing: they won;t save you if you are a donor. That is just ridiculous. You have watched too many B-movies

Yes, I am a donor.  Due to someone pasing away in an accident and being an organ donor they saved my Moms life. I will always be an organ donor.

I think so too. When I told my mom I was changing my status she was going off on that

I absolutely am and I was devastated that they couldn't use my husbands.

That theory is bullshit. Doctors save lives. It makes no sense to let someone die just to save another person.
