Each donor can save up to seven lives. We have seven life-saving organs that we give to others: heart, liver (which may be divided), two kidneys, pancreas and two lungs. If the deceased has already informed those closest to them about their thoughts on organ donation, it is simpler to carry out the exact wishes of the deceased.
There are situations when relatives do not know what the deceased thought about organ donation and this can be a difficult decision for relatives to make. Each donor can save seven lives. Saying yes to organ donation does not involve losing something that you need but for many it can be comforting to know that others can live because of organ donation.
