I was watching soemthing on tv where people were waiting and some dying while waiting for an organ transplant. I inspired me to want to become a donor. I didn't before because I didn't want my family to go through hell waiting to get my body back while they took my organs. I have heard terrible stories about that. Does anyone know more about organ donors and are you a donor? If you are or you are not, tell us why. Thanks. I always read all of my replies and rate them, so please repond if you have something to say.

Yes I am an organ donor, I think it is very important, I like the idea of helping some people after I am gone.

I think so too, after watching the show. People's lives are completely changed after a transplant. Sometimes it is all they needed to have a "regular" life.

I am an organ donar. everything except my eyes. I dont know why i wanted to keep my eyes, but i did. i guess cause you dont need eyes to live, but anything else if it will help someone else live a longer life take it! i wont need it anymore if i die.. i'd rather have another person use my organs then the worms eat it!

yes I am an organ donor. My family knows all about my wishes to do so, i figured i would donate my organs because i want to get cremated anyways and plus it my way of showing that i do care about the world.

I will be a donor someday. I want to donate my organs after I die. I hope someone will be alive because of my donation. And I have another reason for that. I may have no children in my whole life. I don't have to worry about my body if I donate my body. hehe!

I am a donor and have been for years. I have it on my drivers license and in my medical chart. I like the thought that I will be helping someone else to live a better life, after I die.
