Three Post on Organ Donation and Awareness

Posted Oct 28 2009 11:03pm
Here are three post that I have read over the past few months that touch on organ donation. I thought they were all well written and informative. Each of them offer a different outlook on organ failure, organ donation
and organ awareness.
Over the last year I have run across a lot of material that I find useful as a transplant patient. Most of it comes from people who have already undergone a transplant or who are about to. As a person going through chronic liver failure and who has been on the waiting list for over a year now, I know that life can often be very complicated and challenging. The depth of emotions and the physical aspects of the disease can be very taxing and overwhelming for any individual and on their families.
One thing that I've noticed that seems to be a constant; is that the need for tissue and organ donation awareness remains very high. Often people do not recognize this until someone they know has been affected or they themselves are in need of an organ transplant. Many people do not understand that people who are on a transplant waiting list are usually on it for many months and even years; their body functions often failing as time goes on.
