What if family members are opposed to donation?

Once you have signed up on the registry, family members cannot override your wish. At the time of your death, they will be informed of your wish to donate and led through the process so that they understand what is to happen. Your decision to be a donor will help ease their pain, relieving them of making the decision during a difficult time and by knowing that your gift will enhance or save other lives.
