That leaves only one question – why be an organ donor? Why is organ donation important? As I said in the example of my cousins and grandparents, organ donation has helped their lives extend for the better. Although my uncle came to his son’s help and donated his kidney immediately and there was no wait, my entire family and I are glad that the process of transplantation was able to save him from a severe medical condition. However, in the case of my grandparents, who had to wait for their organs, there was no moment more gratifying than when my grandfather received a new heart and my grandmother, a new pancreas. Through organ donation, that happiness can be possible for thousands of families across the nation and across the world. Families like your own, with your parents receiving transplants, or your own son, much like my cousin. Organ donation is important because if you sacrifice the organs you don’t need after your time here on Earth, you yourself can cross as many as fifty names off the list of one hundred and seventeen thousand people waiting for organs in the United States. As we’ve seen, organ donation is a highly beneficial act, yet an incredibly simple obligation. Upon reviewing what organ donation is, how to register to donate, and the importance of organ donation, we’ve covered that organ donation is a medically important issue that most people in this room and most people in this nation can take part in helping. Hopefully, after hearing this presentation, you have a thorough understanding of organ donation, how it can done, and why it is done. Perhaps after gaining such knowledge, some of the parents here will consider it as a choice for themselves as a choice that can save your kids, your parents, or just people in need.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
