"A family once approached me and thanked me for the work that I did after their loved one passed away.   They thanked me for allaying their worries about organ donation and fulfilling their loved one's wishes to be an organ donor.  Such emotions, however, are not always faced by families of the deceased.  There can be anger, grief and guilt as they come to terms with death.  Our role is to understand the family's predicament and help them learn more about life-saving transplants.

My hope is for more people to discuss organ donation with their loved ones, especially during end-of-life care planning, so that their wishes can be respected when the time comes."
