This is a difficult topic and I hope I don’t upset anyone by raising it…
Basically I’ve just realised I need to renew my driving licence and consequently, after starting the process, I discovered I am required to answer some questions and make a decision about organ donation.
I have Multiple myeloma. I am guessing (but I don’t know) that my organs would not be of use to other people? Although the guidance says that uncertainty about medical conditions is not a reason for opting out, it made me wonder, @BCUK_SupportTeam, whether there is a way of donating organs or one’s body for Myeloma/Blood Cancer research? And what implications that would have for loved ones at the time of passing?
I wonder if anyone else has been vexed by this question and what you decided? Please ignore and read on quickly to another post if it’s not a good time to be considering this.
