Do You Need to Register Again?
Remember me posting about the changes to the Missouri donor registry law? It passed in 2008 and changed the donation decision from still needing family approval to honoring the wishes of those registered, no family consent needed. This change means some of us need to register again. If you registered before August 28, 2008, you need to register again to join the new first-person consent registry. To register, please visit www.donatelifemissouri.com . Another change is that there will now be a heart with a green banner symbol placed on your license when you renew. You will be asked, "Do you authorize a symbol to be placed on your license indicating your consent to be listed as an organ, eye, and tissue donor in the donor registry?" Please answer "yes".
