One organ and tissue donor can transform the lives of 10 or more people.
You should discuss organ donation with your family so they know your wishes. You should know what their wishes are too.
For many people donating a loved one's organ comforts them in their loss.
Families that have discussed organ donation find it much easier to agree to a loved one becoming a donor.
