Young parents, children, the old or the young, may be asked to face this challenge. For many, organ donation can be the means to regain normal life and for others it is a matter of life or death.
If asked, most people would say they would be happy to have their organs donated after death, but that is not enough, you must take action now. Make a commitment - it's just a few simple steps.
