Will anyone want my organs when I'm gone?

There is a critical need for organs and tissues throughout the U.S. The criteria for donation are constantly changing. Do not exclude yourself from the possibility of donation on the basis of age or medical history. Many of the people on the transplant waiting list will die before the organ or tissue they need is available, so it is crucial that every potential donor be considered.
