New Organ Donor Law

Missouri has adopted a new organ donor first-person consent law. This is huge for organ donation. This means that now your first-person consent makes the decision final unless revoked by a manner provided by law. Your decision will be honored and family consent is no longer required. Before, even if you had everything in place for donation, a family member had to make the final decision. Sometimes potential donors wishes were not carried out. Now you are in charge. This is such a wonderful change and hopefully it will improve more lives through donation.
