Organ Transplant Help, What you need to know | David Waters
Have you ever had a health issue which has affected your income? If so you will understand. If you have not had a health issue which has affected you and or your workplace. Think about organ transplants and what they mean to you.
This will be a very important post about health issues and your job, business and life.
Over the last few weeks, a good friend of mine has been fighting for life. After being told that the first thing that needs to happen is a Liver transplant.
Now, as a business owner, it caused a lot of tension and with the lack of organ donations, it soon meant having to quit the business and look after her own health.
After all, this is a major organ and has many side effects. In this case, it turned out to be a heredity problem and not alcohol-related like many liver transplants are needed for.
But, you lead a Healthy Life Style
Yes, so did she, then it was something that came out of the blue. Sometimes families might not talk about heredity problems or maybe been adopted you would not know. It may not be a liver but some other health issue. Now it is important to talk to family about your history and what is possible.
It is not an easy subject and you must discuss with your family.
Transplant Donation is Important
In the majority of countries, it is not compulsory and it is really up to each individual to decide if they are to be on the list or not. The worst part is like here in Australia, you could be on the list, and not tell your family you are. At times after death, it is possible for the family to approve your last wish to help someone lead a better life.
What are the reasons for not donating? Maybe religion or self-options that you do not want to donate one.
But, what if something out of the blue happened? What if one day you were in a position from an accident or a previously unknown reason you needed a transplant. Would you want a transplant if that was your last option to live? Most would say YES?
But, with so few people not on a transplant donation list. It gets pretty hard at times depending where you are to keep living.
I have and to me, it is the greatest gift to maybe one day help someone to have better sight, liver, heart etc. Whichever organs which may still be working well. Why not help someone to keep living?
The trouble is
The person on the list waiting, could be out of work for awhile and not be able to even work again. They may have a family, or a husband, wife.
Imagine if you could help someone to live longer when you can’t? Or someone to see better?
It would be great to help someone, and just think if you’re not on the list and you need one is that fair?
Look to your future.

One organ and tissue donor would assist up to 10 people to have a better tomorrow. Donate Life
Why you must discuss your decision with your family is they may say no, In Australia 60% of people who were on the donation list. 93% of families after death said NO!
I find that very hard to understand. If you have a dying wish, should you not give at least 10 people the chance to a better life?
What if a family or friend member needed an organ and there are none, in my friend’s position. What if you knew someone passed away in the room next door with the perfect organ, but the registered family said NO?
Imagine the above case, then someone in the same family needed an organ, and they said no to allowing their beloved one to give 10 other people a better chance of life.
That’s why it is important that yes, you have some tough decisions to make, but, only if you do not talk to your family and think not of the situation but the help it can give.
