When you die, I help decide if you will donate your eyes and/or tissues. IamA Anatomical Donation Coordinator. AMA!
I have been trying to do these AMA's every three months since I joined reddit because I love trying to educate people about the truth of being an organ/tissue donor. There are way too many misconceptions about being a donor, so I just like trying to clear them up.
A few things: I am based in the United States, where we have an opt-in donor registry, I know someone countries have an opt-out (which I would prefer!), so I just want you to know that I may not know how things work in your country, but ask anyway. Also, I specialize in eye and tissue donation, so I am not perfectly knowledgeable about organ donation, but again, feel free to ask away.
As for my proof, I have done three of these already, so feel free to look at them. Perhaps I have already answered your question on one of them:
Edit (1515 PST): I am still answering!
Edit (1700 PST): Guess that is all folks. If you actually have anymore questions, feel free to ask me. I will respond when I log back in again. Thank you all.
