You’ve already signed up to be a donor- great news! Now it’s time to share your decision with your family and friends.
- Discussing donation with your family will help them understand and support your decision. Having these conversations helps your family during a time of great grief and loss. Set aside some time to have a heartfelt conversation with your family. Sharing your decision to be a donor is one of the most important conversations you can have with loved ones.
- When you say Yes to organ, eye, and tissue donation, your decision to be a donor takes priority over your family’s preferences. Making the decision for yourself in advance and then sharing your decision with your family will make it easier for them during a very difficult time.
