    This is a matter very close to my heart,as my brother is awaiting a double lung transplant.
    I would urge everyone to consider signing up for the organ donor register,if not for him then for someone else in the future.
    Cheers

    Was chatting to the misses about this a minute ago, we wondered, of those that would decline to be a donor, would they accept an organ to save their life?

    The difference it makes to someone life, or even the help it does for research makes it seem a no brainer, after all, we wont be needing them when we are gone.

    I was thinking that we are all in nowadays unless you opt out of the donation thing ?

    Sadly this hasn't been brought in yet.

    The other thing you need to do after registering is to let your family know your wishes. Even if you are on the list, if your family refuse when you die your organs are wasted. If everyone knows what your wishes are then this shouldn't happen.
