The gift that keeps giving. Organ Donation.
I'm a firm believer in making the most of the life that you have and leaving a positive mark on the world when your time is up... (A somewhat morbid thought there, ehh?)
And its for this reason that I'd finally sorted myself out and signed up to become an organ donor. I'm not going to lie, I've been thinking about it for years and now finally I'm now one of the 20,000,000 people that have pledged their organs to help save those that are on the Donor Register and actually need these organs to be able to survive their life and therefore leaving there positive impact. To me, its all one big cycle.
The actual sign-up was so unbelievably simple and I have a fully say in what they could take and which I am less comfortable will, so that they cant. (Funnily enough, I'm not liking the idea of them taking my eyes...) I, myself, cannot see why people who claim that they want to be a donor or agree with the idea put off the signup.
I know that everyone has their own views and that not everyone likes the idea of their loved ones choosing to give up parts of themselves if the situation happens to arise but this is my chance to leave a lasting gift to someone else.
I hope that my family are never put in the situation that this is what happens but this is my contingency plan for leaving on a good note. Either way, I will have a positive impact, no matter how big or small or someones life.
