Discovery Health: Organ Donation

Whether you're an organ donor or not, be aware that there's a need out there -- a big one. Today more than 86,000 men, women, and children are on the organ transplant waiting list. That's the facts. Some have made it their mission to match donors with recipients in this noble and ennobling cause. If you think you can't give, first dispel the myths about organ and tissue donation. Still have questions? Read up and then see your state's requirements for becoming a donor. Signing a single card could be the most selfless act you'll ever perform.

Donate your memory chips! Donate your stainless steel knees and hips, your living liver and your running kidneys, your seeing eyes and of course, your giving heart.

Note that donations of organs for transplant is only half of the donataion. The other half is donating one's body to a med school where future doctors get hands on experience. This must be in the will.

btw, donate blood every 3 - 6 months too.

Some of the suggested donations will become possible, let us begin thinking about them none-the-less.

it is truly selfless act helping humanity when u sign up to be an organ donor. and i even have my donor status registered on my driver's license. i dont know about other countries, but here in NZ, that unfortunately, doesnt count for anything. In case of a death, only your next of kin have the right to consent to organ donation, irrespective of whether u have signed a donor card or not

I have my Donor Card in my wallet all ready in case of an emergency. There are so many patients in need of various organs out there and organ donation is our chance to help such people posthumously.
