For many, the decision to become an organ donor is a difficult but important choice. There are so many questions and things to consider: financial costs to loved ones, religion, and conscience.
Yet, the majority of religions encourage the act with enthusiastic approval, viewing it as the ultimate gift of charity. The cost is taken care of by the recovery agencies, and in the end your donation might save up to eight lives and possibly aid 50 others. The fact that there are around 1,400 people waiting for donations in Colorado alone should ease most issues with conscience.
Becoming a donor and joining the confidential Colorado Organ and Tissue Donor Registry is as simple as checking the "yes" box when asked about donor preference on the driver license, permit, or ID card applications.
When you receive the final document a small red heart with the letter "Y" in the middle of it will appear in the lower right corner. On the flipside, if you choose, you can indicate specific organs or tissue to donate, or check the "any needed" line. Sign your name in the space provided and you are officially giving the gift of life.
You can always decide later to sign up or remove your name by visiting the Colorado Donor Registry.
Informative brochures are available at any Colorado driver license office.
