  •  I became a donor when I re-reg'd my license (6+ / 0-)

    We aren't religious at all, but I did discuss it with my mom at first.  Just in case anything did happen to me, she would be informed as to why my organs would be collected as fast as possible.  And just to know in general.  She was absolutely fine with it, I just felt it would be important to let her know.

    This is a clip from 2011 that described how a football player who tragically died saved the lives of four individuals.  His devastated mother decided to consent to having his organs donated (he was not registered at the time of his coma and then death), and it has helped her heal.  If you don't tear up after watching this clip, you are not human.

    Best wishes for the New Year.  I am very thankful that your mom has received her new kidney, you have kept us informed throughout the past year at the NYC meet ups, so I know this has been an ongoing issue.  Hope to see you soon at an NYC meet up (it's a trip from Philly!)
