Best wishes and prayers for Jerry! Organ donation is an awesome gift! Take a second and make sure you have that little red heart on your license!

Just heard this - how sad. Being willing to be an organ donor is so important. I have that little symbol on my license

Thanks to those who have posted in favor or organ donation! My mother passed away after 4 years on a waitlist, it is so important to sign your card and make sure friends and family are aware of your wishes.

My thoughts are with him, I hope it works out.

So sorry about your mom!

Making the choice to donate ahead of time relieves an already grieving family from having to make a difficult decision. It's important to communicate your wishes to family, as even though the driver's license displays your decision, many times it is overridden by the family.

I am another organ doner...I can't imagine anyone being reluctant to donate. If you are already on life support..why not dontate so that others may benefit? Clearly, your life is pretty much over...give so that others may live.
