I did for everything. Poop, can't now for medical reasons.
..what's up?.....i didn't realize there was a funeral and final arrangements thread
I have. When my son passed away 7 years ago this week, I was asked if we would consider donating his eyes and heart tissue. I didn't hesitate. We've since learned that two separate people received his eyes (a 1 yr old and a 19 yr old) and it's my understanding that hundreds have benefited from his heart tissue. Nothing can erase our tragedy, but it helps knowing that our tragedy can help someone else that desperately needed us.
I think people don't think about it much until it touches someone they love. When someone you love ends up on a waiting list you begin to realize how important it is that there are people out there willing to give.
....that's nice KCC....(nice is the wrong word....you know what I mean) good thoughts and suggestions....i have thru my driver's license........used to be an automatic request, can't remember if it is now.....
I also have designated my desire to be an organ donor through my driver's license as well. It is not automatic in Indiana. You have to agree.
In the US your wishes to donate must be supported by your next of kin at the time of death. So if you want to donate, make sure your next of kin know and respect this wish.
I have, we have a choice on our health card if we want to be a donor. I also got a card that I passed onto my sister.
It's all too creepy. I have nightmares that they'll kill me to get my organs! No... no... no... I'll do all the good I can while I live. After I die, just burn me and throw my ashes to the sea. But the liver stays with me! Thank you!
I have arranged for my organs to be donated since I was a teenager and my entire family feels the same.
I had a young cousin who died in the hospital waiting for a heart lung transplant.
i told my husband to say i am not a donor at first, but then if i am declared dead or braindead, they can have anything in my abdomen. i hadn't thought about teeth. i think i'll tell him to donate those, too. i have good teeth.
i know i'll be dead, but the idea of someone mucking around in my chest or with my eyes or bones or brain leaves me cold. i am not even going to be embalmed because the idea gives me chills. in life, i avoid needles. if i absolutely need to get blood work, i make them draw it from my hands, as far from my center as possible. i know it's weird, but i've always been this way, even as a kid.
Yes I have. I also try to keep in good health. Death often promotes life.

Could you donate an organ while you are still alive?Humans can live with one kidney, and can survive even after donating part of their liver or lung. This is a bit different than being an organ donar, where they take your organs after you are dead. Could you donate your organs while living, and...
