Wouldn’t it be great if we could grow new body parts when we needed them? That might be true someday, but until then, we rely on the goodness of people who choose to become organ donors.

 

At this very moment, more than one hundred thousand people are on the organ transplantation list. Sadly, many will die waiting. So here’s how to become a donor:

 

Indicate your intent to become an organ donor on your driver’s license.

 

Enter your name on your State’s Donate Life Registry.

 

Make sure you tell your next of kin your wishes, so there isn’t any uncertainty later on.

 

If you have a living will, include your desire to donate organs.

 

It’s hard to come to terms with the death of a loved one, but saving a life might help you cope with a terrible terrible loss.
