How Easy Is Applying?

           Applying to be on the Organ/Tissue/Eye Donors Registry is as simple and convenient as check-marking a box on your driver’s license application nowadays. If that method seems to blunt for you, more detailed information is always available on the “U.S. Government Information on Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation” webpage. There, you can either apply online or print an application and mail it in. Information on what parts of your body you can choose to donate upon dying and what parts you can forbid are explained in detail. They also give instructions on what steps to take if one wishes to do a live donation (a donation in which the organ is transplanted from one living donor to a living recipient). So ask yourself, is supposed lack of convenience holding you back? If so, you have simple options as listed above, if not, move on to the next question, “does my religion conflict with my donation?”
