Letter about April is National Donate Life Month...


Mon, Apr 6th, 2015
Posted in All Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Although we tend to avoid dealing with decisions regarding our own or our loved ones’ deaths, discussions about individual wishes pertaining to organ and tissue donation help prevent delays or potential disagreements within families.

Some people fear that a designated donor’s care in a vital situation may be less than optimal. In reality, organ donation is not even considered until every effort has been made to save the life of a critically ill person.

Ironically, age and most health issues do not prevent donation. The oldest organ donor was 92 years of age.

One person can save and heal up to 60 lives through organ and tissue donation. Many families find comfort in knowing that their loved one has enabled others to experience life more fully through their gift. There is no cost for expenses pertaining to donation.

A national registry matches recipients and donors as fairly and efficiently as possible by blood type, body size, location, severity of illness and length of time on the waiting list. More than 123,000 individuals currently need lifesaving organ transplants and about 21 people die each day from lack of available organs.

Although 90% of Americans say they support donation, only 30% know the steps to become a donor. Take this opportunity to find out more about organ and tissue donation and become a donor by accessing https://www.lifesourcedonorregistry.org/donate.aspx.
