Not true. The donor's family is not responsible for any donation-related medical expenses. Money should never prohibit someone from saving someone's life.
This is a very popular myth because it's so scary and sounds straight out of a horror movie. But in reality, it's just not true! Donation only occurs after official death has been declared - and trust us, it's a LOT of tests.
You might feel like you're old, but your organs, tissues, or eyes could make a huge impact or even save the life of someone else. Don't ever count yourself out! Anyone, regardless or age or medical history, can register to save lives as a donor.
