    I have opted to be a donor in the event of my

    death, although I don't believe I can give blood due to medication i had taken in the past. Not sure if that has changed.

    Or at least I told my parents

    that I want to donate my organs in case I die before I'm old enough to register as an organ donor. If I die when I'm young, I'll have young and healthy organs to donate, and at least I'll contribute something useful to society!

    My mom has renal kidney failure. She needs a kidney & a pancreas. I would've gladly have given her a kidney in a heartbeat, but I don't have the same blood type as her. I'd long considered becoming an organ donor even before my mom got sick: why not give people something that...

    I think this is an amazing way to give someone

    a chance at life. You don't need to take perfectly good organs with you when you pass on, think of a child who might need a kidney and yours is the only one that can save them...in a way makes you a super hero so grab your cape and sign up for this life saving thing......

    Please consider becoming an organ donor.

    Because almost every part of the body can be used, you may be able to save as many as eight lives and vastly improve the lives of dozens of others after you’re gone. How’s that for a legacy?
