Organ Donation

My new driver's licence came in the mail just the other day. You know the one, with the ugly picture. (or is that just me?)

Anyway, I was about to throw out the donor form, like I always have, when it hits me... what am I going to do with these organs and tissue when, you know, I can't do anything with these organs and tissue?

Just asking you to think about it. They say less than 20 % of us do consent.

Thanks for reading.

So many people on waiting lists...I agree with Rob - lets at least think about it. Oh and by the way, it's about time you got your license, Elwood!

Thanks Rob for posting this.

My brother was a very fortunate recipient of a kidney on 2 different occasions which did certainly provide him with a opportunity to get off the 3 time a week dialysis ordeal. Many trips we made to London, Kitchener and Hanover to take him for the treatments which severely limited any sort of a chance of a normal lifestyle.

Unfortunately it usually takes a tragedy from one family to help out another, but I can tell you personally the gift of organ donation can mean so much to others.

Don't take your organs to heaven...heaven knows we need them here ;);););)
