As a person who’s gone through breast cancer treatment I figured it was impossible to sign up for organ donation as my ‘goods’ weren’t good anymore. Not so!
If I die in the right conditions they’ll take what they can, like my eyes. Not an easy sell for the people at DonateLife, but a necessary one all the same. Irony of all ironies is that now my life has been threatened I’m happy to sign up for organ donation – but – before my breast cancer diagnosis I was spooked by signing up; that to sign up for organ donation would somehow bring my death on sooner, or that if I arrived in a resuscitation unit at some hospital’s A & E they’d not try so hard to revive me. All of which are false baby false.
