Give in life and death is special

GIVING the gift of life to a total stranger can be one of the most uplifting things we as humans can do.

A lot of people train to become surf life guards, ambulance officers, doctors or surgeons so they can help save peoples' lives. As ordinary people we can help too, just by agreeing to donate our organs if something bad ever happens to us.

Gympie jockey Desiree Gill loved to help people in life, now it has been revealed she is still helping people despite her passing, all because she agreed to donate her organs.

It's not an easy decision for loved ones but if you discuss the issue with your family and tell them your wishes, things become simpler. Then it's just a case of registering your intent on the Australian Donor Register website so medical professionals will know of your decision.
