Donors: It is very important to discuss your decision to donate with your next of kin as they will be asked for their consent to proceed with the donation after your death and will be instrumental in assuring a successful donation. Involving your family may help them better remember your intentions to donate. Your physician and/or psychiatrist should be aware of your decision, as well. All of these individuals can help you address concerns, complete the donation forms, and ensure your wishes will be respected.
