Everyone has their own reasons for becoming a donor, and it is important that your family, partner and friends understand those reasons. It is important for people to make an informed decision, so you may like to share the facts around organ and tissue donation included on this website. You may also like to share some of the stories about donors and recipients.
One way of sharing information is to look at the myths and frequently asked questions about organ and tissue donation. It's important that your family remember the discussion so that if they are ever faced with having to make the decision about you, they immediately know your wishes.
The most important thing is after you have made your own decision about whether to become an organ donor - and register that decision - that you discuss your wishes with your family. Organ and tissue donation can not proceed without the consent of the family.
This means that if you want to be a donor, your family needs to know.
