    All I Have To Say Is...

    I'm an organ donor. I'll be damned If I'm going to be burried in a box (not that I want to be burried at all) and let my perfectly good organs just rot away when someone else could be using them. I won't need them anymore. Why not put them to good use?

    I don't see why not..

    .I won't need as soon as I'm dead. I'll let the experts decide what's "useable" or not. I hope somebody can use my organs...if not, that's ok too as long as that "donor" option is available.

    This always seems like a gruesome thing to talk

    about. As it involves slicing people up almost immediately after they have died. I became an Organ Donor as I got my Driver's License. I always felt that after I died, my body could help other people to live, it seemed like a good thing to do. However, I can understand other...

    Sad But True

    When I was 12, two girls in my school died. (So did one's little brother.) Anyway, A. & B both were organ donors, and I heard that together, they saved 6 or 7 lives, and improved so many others. I'd like to be that person, so that even after I die, I'm still giving back to the...

    And You Should Be Too!!

    Everyone should be an organ donor.  You don't have to be a live donor, you can wait until you are dead... cause when you die, you don't need them, don't be an as$hole, save a life. Donate.

    Earlier this week I finally registered myself

    as a donor. I'm actually really proud I did. In the first place because I know there's a shortage in our country when it comes to donors. And of course when I or somebody I love needs a donor I hope there will be someone who during his/her life signed up for it. In the second...

    I'm a big believer in this.

    I have a family member whose life was saved by an organ donation. But, am I the only one that gets a kick out of the term "organ donor"? I got a donation a'ight. Heh, heh, heh.

    My sister inspired me to be an organ donor.

    She died at age 12 in a car accident. Mom and Dad chose to donate her lungs, kidneys, heart, eyes even. Recently, and for the first time in 20 years of only knowing the recipient's name, Mom and Dad and I finally met the deserving woman who received Carrie's lungs; it was so...

    Registered For Organs And Marrow

    I have been a registered organ donor for about 24 years now. Once I'm gone, I won't need 'em. In addition, I registered to be a bone marrow donor about five years ago. I would be happy to help another person if I can.

    for years, and have carried a card. If the worst should happen, at least I might be of some use to someone else.

    I am registered to donate all of my organs

    and tissue in the event of my death. I don't understand why everyone is not, when you are dead your body rots and all your parts go to waste...meanwhile there is some poor person out there desperate for a kidney or a heart or whatever. Individual beliefs or taboos are not more...

    Children And Newborns Are Dying From Heart Failure.

    The organisation of the body is a wonderful

    thing, and if I have no use for it, I am more than happy to make parts of it available so someone else can love.

    The Gift Of Life

    You don't need them after you die...so why not donate them? (Unless for religious reasons, which I guess I can understand) Imagine knowing you can save someone's life by giving away something you no longer need.

    For Thirty Years

    I've been a registered donor since I was in my 20's, I'm 53 now. Is there an age limit for the organs? I think mine are still in pretty good shape. They may have to wring out my liver a couple of times, it gets a lot of use. (-;
