My husband just seen my drivers license and just realized I was a organ donor. He seems to have a problem with them cutting me all up and think if I'm on life support they will just take my organs before my family decide I should pass. I think people's organs should go to help someone else. Are you an organ donor?

I am not an organ donor yet, but I will be. It is a great cause, and If there is no chance that I am going to make it, or I have already passed, then I would love to think that I would be saving tons of other people. It's a great way to save lives, and just think... if your mother,father,sister,husband, or other close family member or friend needed an organ replacement... How awesome would it be if they could because someone was kind enough to donate thier organs?! It's an awesome thing you are doing! Just explain to your husband the benifits of saving others! Go yoU!

Yes, I am. If something happens to me, I want my organs to help someone else. After all, I won't need them.

Yup! I am! I do like the idea of my organs going to help others. I've already informed my husband that I want to be cremated when I die so it seems like a waste to just burn my organs along with my body when they can go to someone in need.

Yes, I am also an organ donor as is my husband. It is important to me that if I can make a difference in someone's life that I do so I am also on the National Bone Marrow Donor list. I give blood and have given platelets as well. Life is so precious and everyone deserves the best chance to be healthy.
