Why Donation?

Everyone is a potential donor. The public is encouraged to discuss their thoughts about organ and tissue donation with their family members. Physicians and medical caregivers are urged to become familiar with the various donation possibilities and to pay close attention to the wishes of the family. Although not an easy task, offering the option of donation to a bereaved family often brings hope and encouragement in a tragic situation.

How Can I Make A Difference?

Discuss the possibility of tissue donation with your family members, and make sure that they understand that your wish is to be a donor after your own death.

No medical tests are required, and it is
not necessary to complete any
additional forms.
