Aug 30 Question

When you are gone, dead, passed away...whatever you choose to call it. Will you donate your organs?

I will. Why not, I'll be done with them and if they help someone else live a longer better life why shouldn't I do it. I would want whatever means necessary to save my child if they needed it. 

Everyone in our household is an organ donor. It is on our drivers license and all family members know we are.

You?

My dad needs a kidney, really 2, but is not eligible for a transplant. So this really hits home for me.

Does your family know? Is it on a document somewhere? I did not know prior to needing the info but it has to be documented with the doctor, drivers lic. agency or somewhere. Things we never think of but need to know.

 I will

 It says on my drivers lic. that I am an organ donor. Yes my family knows and all of them are also organ donors too.

Yes, I have that on my driver's license, and my family all knows about it.

My dad is taking it one step farther - he is donating his entire body to a teaching hospital!!!!  He has everything already in place and when they are done with his body, it will be cremated.

Hopefully, I will be too old. If not, yes.

I am listed as an organ donor on my driver's license.  My family knows that is what I want.  My brother is still alive because he got a kidney transplant from someone who died.  I intend to pass it on.
