Giving the gift of life

I did something yesterday that I've been thinking about doing for a while.

I downloaded the form to be an organ and tissue donor and signed it ... Gord is mailing it for me today.

What it came down to is this ... if I need a heart or a lung, I wouldn't hesitate to have a transplant because I want to live as long and healthily as I can. Because I don't have a problem taking, I should be willing to give too.

Gord knows I want to be cremated so it would be a shame to waste those parts.

Have you signed your donor card?

Good for you! That's a great thing to do! I haven't done anything like that. At the age I am I'm not sure I have any organs anyone would want....! I will be 79 in June and have lots of Physical Problems....I honesty think my organs would be unacceptable.
