Lets Talk About It One More Time.

Organ donation is goodly. You know it. I know it. There are almost 100,000 people in the United States waiting for life saving organ transplants. I'm talking life saving, not life altering, like um tissue, and cornea (and don't forget pancreas and islet) transplants that improve quality of life rather then save it.

My sister died this year waiting for a liver. She waited three years before she got too sick to survive surgery and was taken off the transplant list. I think the day she was removed from the transplant list was harder then the day she died because we all were thinking the same thing. What if more organs were available? Would she have been transplanted sooner and survived?

At this point, what if's don't mean a thing unless I do something about it so that someone else doesn't have to live with what if.

So I registered with my state as an organ donor

and I'll ask you

once again

to register.


It'll do your karma good!

find your state's registry here.

thank you.
