Are you registered to become an organ donor?

From the Mayo Clinic:


Enough people to populate a small city nearly 100,000 are on the U.S. organ transplant waiting list, waiting for an organ donation. On an average day, about 77 people receive organ transplants. But thousands more never get that call from their transplant center saying a suitable donor organ and a second chance at life has been found.


It can be hard to think about what's going to happen to your body after you die, let alone donating your organs and tissue. But being an organ donor is a generous and worthwhile decision that can be a lifesaver. Understanding organ donation can make you feel better about your choice. If you've delayed your decision to be a donor because of possibly inaccurate information, here are answers to some common organ donation myths and concerns:

Are you registered to become an organ donor?

Absolutely yes, I'd like to think that if I needed something there would be some one somewhere who could help and I'd like to help in return and make some ones life easier.

I feel the same as you Kathy. Adam's Dad had to have a kidney and thank God he got one. What ever is in me that they can use when the time comes is okay by me.

I am too. In Iowa they ask if you want to be an organ donor when getting your lisence. It makes it very easy.
