86-year-old organs

December 3, 2011 in Featured Question of the Week, Question of the Week, What are your thoughts about organ donation? by Nicholas Vieron

What are your thoughts about Father Val’s donation as well as organ donation in general? Have you stated your intent to be an organ donor on the back of your driver’s license? Why or why not? Do you know anyone who has donated organs or received organ transplants?

I join the many in admiring Fr. Val and appreciating the reporting of the story. Of course, I am a donor but I don’t think anyone can use an 86-year-old organ.
