Donate you life is an interesting concept. A lot of you may even question, what exactly does it mean to “donate your life”? This blog post is intended to help inform you of how you can help through registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor.
We will start by saying that we understand that becoming a donor is not for everyone, and we respect that. For those that are interested in registering to become a donor, you are opening the door to bridge the gap between one family’s mourning and another’s healing.
According to OrganDonor.gov:
Your tissue can do so much for someone in need. By donating your tissues, ligaments, and bones your donation can give the gift of movement back to a person. By donating live organs such as kidneys or even lobes of your liver, you are able to donate while still alive due to the ability for the human body regenerate liver lobes and live with only one kidney. And when you’re gone, your eyes, organs and even your skin can be transplanted to someone in need.
Someday, it could be you or one of your family members in need. Life is unpredictable and you never know when an emergency or health condition will arise.
