Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
- Every attempt will be made to save your life. A separate team of doctors will harvest your organs after you die.
- There is no charge to your family for your organ donation.
- Almost everyone, regardless of sex, age, or race can donate organs.
- One organ donor can help up to 25 people.
- All major religions approve organ donation as charitable giving, but realize it is an individual's choice.
- Organ donation does not alter your appearance, so a normal open-casket funeral is still possible.
- It is illegal to sell human organs or tissue.
- Many organs and tissues can be donated by a live donor. You don't have to wait until you are dead to contribute blood, bone marrow, bone―and sometimes even a portion of your lung, liver, or pancreas. You may also donate one kidney if your other kidney is healthy and functioning properly.
When applying for or renewing a driver's license, permit, or state ID card, you can request to have the donor designation added to the document.
Be sure to let your family and friends know of your decision.
