Not many people are comfortable discussing the subject of death, especially their own. However, it can be easier on your family if certain decisions are made ahead of time. Making your wishes known can help a grieving family make it through a difficult period. Of course, planning for your funeral is a priority, but even before the funeral, people need to make another decision. Whether or not to “Donate Life” with their tissues and/or organs. The need for donations is large, as the national waiting list is over 102,000 people. In comparison, last year there were only 30,000 transplants performed. Many people die while waiting to receive help.
