Organ Donation

Hi guys

Ive just been reading a post on here that was from about 2 months ago and they were talking about organ donors and the law

Anyone living in Wales uk age 18 or over will automatically be an organ donor unless you opt out and that begins the 2nd of December this year. Ive put a link up as there are some exemptions to the rules ..........hope your all well x

Thanks. We had a letter about it telling us how to opt out. Who would want anything of mine? bad eyes - two cataracts removed 3 years ago, tumours in liver (benign) lungs shot - I could go on! ha ha! Seriously I am so pleased that people do donate their organs when they do it is wonderful.

Hi Tam, I'm really hoping you won't let that twot beat you. Please don't go, you make the day for so many people on here.

I reported all his/her brainless, provocative replies too. I can't understand why BLF didn't do something.

Just have a little break and come back to all who are so fond of you xxx Penelope
