Why register?

Without documentation of a loved one’s wishes, families often decline to authorize donation. By enrolling on the registry, your desire to donate is stored in a secure, confidential database. Should your death result in the opportunity for you to be a donor, an official record of your donor designation will be readily available and can be shown to your family. Thus, should you be medically suitable to donate, your wishes will be respected, and your family will be relieved of the burden of making a decision on your behalf.
