Who Can Be a Donor?
Almost everyone can donate. Donors may range in age from full-term newborns through adults. Living a healthy lifestyle helps ensure that a person can be a suitable donor. Nevertheless, many of today's donors have pre-existing medical conditions that do not rule them out as a potential donor.
Regardless of your age or health, if you want to become an organ and/or tissue donor, you should register online at www.Every11Minutes.org or at any South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles office when obtaining, renewing or changing your driverís license/ID.
All major religions support the individual’s right to help others by being an organ and/or tissue donor. Donation is generally viewed as a final act of love and generosity toward other human beings. If you have any concerns about your religion’s support of donation, please talk with your clergy or your spiritual advisor.
