Yep, we're both registered. Would definitely donate the children's organs ifin that situation too.
My mum will be having a kidney transplant very soon (from a known donor). Like some others, I really struggle to understand how people can be so resistant to the idea.

Yes I am. It was a no-brainer for me.

I have put undecided on my licence, however family knows that I do want to donate - my mum is a nurse and explained that if you put down your an organ doner they can take your organs etc before family has seen you. And I think is important for family to say their goodbyes etc...

There is a donation program in the US where if you willingly donate and family members need something in the future they get bumped up the list.

Yes DH and I are both registered as donors. I think it's incredible that medicine and technology can use the organs of others to improve, extend and save lives. It's miraculous. Someone I went to school with is on the heart transplant list. I really hope she gets her 'new' heart and lives a long and healthier life.

Yes I'm a registered donor.
I think organ donation is amazing
I recently saw a very heartwarming clip where a mother met the little girl who received the donated heart from her deceased child. There were lots of tears and the mother listened to the girl's heartbeat with a stethoscope. Powerful stuff.

I feel like I need to say that I completely respect everyone's choice to do what they want with their own bodies - my MIL would never donate.
I didn't post my story to try and guilt anyone into anything, just to show one grateful recipients journey xx
