The topic of organ donation is a personal thing and it some ways it's a taboo subject. Western society has a strong fear of death. It's almost as if we think we are jinxing ourselves if we talk about it.
It also means we are squeamish when it comes to talking about donating our organs.
In Australia if you register to donate your organs, your family can veto that decision when the actual time comes.
I have told both my dad and my partner to 'farm em out!' because I can't use them when I'm dead.
Should it happen anytime soon - hold them to it!!!
I'm happy to say that the lives of several people are going to change for the good because my workmate and her family have decided to donate her husbands organs.
Some good can come out of bad.
Thanks for all the bloggy love and kind words.
