Yesterday is National Organ Donor Day!
Why do you think it is so important?
It promoted different outpouring of love Did you know that your eye and tissue donation can save up to 8 lives or restore more than 75 lives when you die as an organ donor? That is an incredible way to show your love for humanity.
It gives you control over your final wish Families don't often understand why organ donation is so vital, so after you've decided to join a donor registry, talk it over with your family to make sure your final request is carried out. It's also a good idea to put your wishes in writing, asking your family to supply medical and social background information and paperwork. Being proactive now ensures that your family is well-prepared to carry out your pledge without unnecessary hardship.
It replaces myths with accurate information There are currently more people awaiting transplants than in years past. Some people believe certain illnesses or physical defects will keep you from being a donor. Other people think that physicians won't try hard to save your life if they know you're a donor, which discounts the number one priority for doctors.
