Recently, a woman announced definitively that she was going to be an organ donor when she died. Her assuredness contradicted reality, as circumstances of death must mesh with stringent parameters in order for transplants to happen. In spite of good intentions, often transfers of innards to living recipients are not possible. Of course, there won’t be any utterance of “Darn, I am so disappointed!” coming from her if the potential donor is deemed an unsuitable candidate. But family members may feel sorely deflated, knowing that this woman had been hell-bent on having her internal leftovers benefit the lives of others.
