    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Are you an organ donor?

    Have you made arrangements that when you die, someone else can use your organs?

    How do you feel about this?

    I'm not an organ donor. I don't think i'd wanna be, but i don't wanna discourage anyone who is.

    Who knows, maybe i'll change my mind one day ... but for now ... i'm wondering, how do you feel about it?

    Please share.

    Thanks.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Organ Donor

    Currently, I am not a donor, I had considered becoming one years ago. Now that I have reached a certain age I no longer think about becoming one. In 1996, my second oldest brother needed a kidney after being on dialysis for over two years. I asked him if he wanted me to be tested to see if I was a match, I recall his response to me as weird. I will not post his response. Anyway, he did receive one from a 23 year old victim of a motorcycle accident, he was in his late forties at the time. Although the doctors said it was a match he still had to take numerous medications after he was given the donor kidney.
    Love & Blessings,
