We all say, “some things are best left behind.” This is so true when it comes to organ donation, isn’t it? It is like you are giving a gift of life to someone who is in need.
Organ donation has always been a controversial topic amongst us, but still there are people who thinks this as a selfless act, and tilt the balance of life and death in favour of a person in need. Lack of knowledge and awareness has led to the development of false notions about organ donation.
Every year thousands of people die while waiting for a transplant and unavailability of the suitable donor. By donating your organ, you will not only be doing a humanitarian deed but you also fulfil your social responsibilities. Moreover it ensures that a part of you survives even after death.
Your generous act will give the transplant receiver a second chance of life, which is gift of life you are giving to them.
Patients with organ failure have to continuously bear painful and expensive treatments just to survive. By donating your organs, you can relieve them of such costly routine treatments.
We know sorrow of losing a loved one cannot be overcome. But by donating an organ, the family of the deceased donor, can somewhat be able to feel a sense of goodness that comes from a tragedy.
Living persons too can donate a kidney, a part of the liver, pancreas, intestines and blood, still continuing to live a normal life.
The success rate of organ transplant is high, but unfortunately not many people come forward to pledge their organs for the good or needy one.
Your organs benefit someone else after your death but your memory will live on for the grateful people who receive your organs.
