Your decision to become an organ donor is a very private and personal one. To help you with your decision, there are three critical steps to follow:
Step 1. Learning:
Read and learn as much as you can about organ and tissue donation. There are a lot of myths surrounding organ donation, most which are due to ignorance. Refer to our Myths vs. Realities section to clarify them.
Step 2. Discuss with family & Decide:
It is important to discuss your decision with family or next of kin. This is because in case of an emergency or an untoward incident, your family will be the first to be contacted. Only after seeking their permission can the doctors go ahead with retrieving your organs. If your family is aware of your decision, your wishes will be carried out the way you would have liked.
In scenarios where the families are not aware and need to be counseled on the wishes of their deceased relative, a lot of precious time is lost and sometimes the opportunity to donate is gone. In Organ donation, time is of prime importance. It is essential for the organs or tissues to be removed as soon as possible after the event of death, else they become unusable. This is why we urge you to please discuss this decision with your family.
If you are less than 18 years old,then your parents’ consent is required for organ donation. So if you want to become a donor, it’s important to tell them that you wish to donate. Children too are in need of organ transplants, and they usually need organs smaller than those an adult can provide.
Step 3: Take Action:
If you’ve decided that you want to donate your organs after death, it is important that you register your decision by signing upfor Organ Donation. Fill the online form by clicking on the link below and submit. On successful registration, you will receive a donor card from one of our NGO partners with 10 days. Remember to carry your donor card along with you at all times.
In case you wish to change your decision and withdraw your consent to be an organ donor, just tear the donor card and deregister yourself. Also, inform your family that you no longer wish to be an organ donor.
