The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult things you will face. But during this time, you can make a decision that offers your family members the opportunity to give a final gift to someone else in need. This decision may also offer you and your family some comfort in knowing that another person’s life was saved by this special gift.
You and your family might be contacted by a member of the Gift of Hope Organization or the MTF (Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation) and asked to consider donation as a possible last act for your loved one. Depending on your situation, you may be offered the option to consent to the donation of various organs, tissue, eyes or corneas.
Please be assured that:
- Organ and tissue/eye donation is, in essence, a gift of life. Each tissue is extremely valuable to the recipient.
- The donation will not delay the funeral or memorial services and will still allow for open casket viewing if desired.
- Your family will not incur any additional medical costs because of donation.
Every year, families are offered the opportunity to give the gift of life through donation. We understand the decision to donate is a difficult and personal choice, one which often needs to be made at a time when the family is experiencing a traumatic loss. We encourage you to discuss this topic with your family and loved ones.
