No doubt many of you have seen T shirts or bumper stickers with the catchy slogan:
"Don't Take Your Organs to Heaven... Heavens Knows We Need Them Here."
Prior to being diagnosed with SLL/CLL, I had opted to be an organ donor. When I followed up my suitability after diagnosis, I was informed that my organs would still be useful. That surprised me given how quickly my blood donations were no longer desired.
1) Given up to 10 people patiently waiting for a chance at a better life, or indeed life itself, benefit from each person donating their organs, how many of us have made a decision about this?
2) Is anyone aware of organ donations not being accepted from someone with leukaemia?
