February 14th is widely known as Valentine’s day. But did you know it is also National Donor Day? According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, one organ donor can save up to 8 lives, and can also enhance the lives of many others through tissue donation. An organ donor can be either deceased or living, and can ease the list of over 100,000 people who are waiting for an organ transplant to save their lives or improve their health.
How does one become a donor? First you must make the decision and inform you family and friends about the decision. It is also important register as an organ donor with your state, so it can designate your status on the driver’s license. Keep in mind, don’t ever rule yourself out due to your age! A healthy 60 year old liver can be in better condition than a 30 year old liver who has had alcohol abuse. So don’t limit yourself from positively affecting other people’s life. Talk with your loved ones, ask your doctor, and decide for yourself if you wish to become an organ donor today!
