Families of donors must give their permission before donation can happen. They can stop a donation no matter what you have said or signed. A new name is added to the National Donor Register every 30 minutes. Already 20% of the people who die yearly become an organ donor, but 50,000 Americans are awaiting a transplant, and 12,000 to 15,000 people who die yearly are medically suitable for an organ donation.There are a lot of myths about organ donation. Example: If you are in a car accident and are still alive, people will forget to treat you or even kill you, so they can get your organs. This is not true. There is no police record or report of this ever happening. Also people think that having an organ removed will disfigure your body. This is also not true. Donating doesn't disfigure your body in any way. It doesn't prevent you from having an open casket funeral. You can donate heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, pancreas, skin, bones, eyes, veins, and heart valves. More than ever, people need organ donations. New drugs and procedures help make the transplant safer, which makes the need for organs greater.If you would like to become an organ donor, the most important thing to do is talk to your family about it and make sure they understand your wishes. Also make sure that you get the yes in the donor box on your license.Remember, you can save many lives by just becoming an organ donor! APPENDIX Ryan, George H.
