If you wish to be an organ and tissue donor, all you have to do is say yes to organ and tissue donation on your donor card and/or driver's license and discuss your decision with your family.
Nationally, about 63 people receive an organ transplant every day, but another 15 people on the waiting list die because not enough organs are available. In South Carolina alone, 77 people died in the past two years waiting for organs, and 709 people in South Carolina are currently on waiting lists for organ and tissue transplants.
The problem is that people who sign donation cards will not be treated as donors (even though that is all that is legally required) unless their families consent. So, please advise your clients that if they want to be organ donors they have to tell their family members.
