Such a huge decision to make during a time of grief. My daughter died aged 9 months, unfortunately due to her condition I was unable to donate her organs , had we had the chance to save other lives it would have meant something good came from her premature passing. If I could stop another parent suffering how I did then it's got to be worth it . Life is the most precious gift you can give.

I want to be a organ donor too, but I don't think they will want my body parts when I'm done with them. YOLO!

I am a nurse and years ago I worked in a busy operating room. Organ harvesting was part of our job. You never knew when one would arrive. I was involved in several but one, in particular, has always stayed with me. She was a nine year old little girl who suffered a stroke on the playground. One minute fine, the next brain dead. I will never forget her face. She saved/improved the lives of 13 people through her donation. I believe in God and I don't understand why these things happen, but I do know that He is love. I truly believe that I will meet this sweet girl in heaven. My oldest daughter is nine now. My heart goes out to these families who make this gut wrenching decision during their darkest hour.

My brother died very unexpectedly less than two weeks ago. He had made the decision to be an organ donor. Although my heart is broken he's gone, I am proud of him for the choice. His gift gave someone the chance at another day.

Some people might be hesitant to check off the ‘organ donor box’ when applying for or renewing their license, but they shouldn’t be. Before checking that box off, there are just a few important things you should be aware of.

Your loved one has requested that one or more of his or her organs be donated. Perhaps you have mixed feelings about the pros and cons of organ donation. A little understanding of the process will help you to accept his or her wishes.

I've never been through this, but I know how it feels to lose someone you love, and I'm sure when it happens I'll be glad to embrace everything especially if the loved ones already decided to donate their organs. This case is different cause it was a baby, I'm sure it was really hard from them to donate baby's organ's to others too but the world is just beautiful as it is when we have people like them, and people willing for others!

I became an Organ Donor when I was 16, and my parents freaked out. I am pretty sure that they are still quite upset about the idea. I just genuinely believe that it is the best thing that you could possibly do, you can literally give someone life with your death. I find it impossible not to see it as quite a beautiful thing.
