If you would like to donate organs or tissues, there are three ways of making your wishes known:
Discuss your wishes with your family and inform them about your decision.
Take the opportunity of National Organ Donor Week, from April 17 to 24, 2016 to talk to your coworkers, friends, and family. Whatever your decision, talking about it is important.
