Obviously, we all want to live long, healthy, and robust lives. However, passing away some day is inevitable and it is important to plan ahead intelligently so that your legacy can have a positive impact on your family members and perhaps others.
Of course the financial component is key, and knowing that you are going to be able to provide your family with a financial underpinning after you are gone can be a comforting feeling.
There however other things to take into consideration as well, and with this in mind it would be a good idea to recognize the fact that organ donors are always needed.
Since the medical community has become so good at performing transplant surgeries these days a second chance at life exists for many people who would have had no such hopes in years gone by. This is obviously a personal matter, but you can make a very positive difference if you agree to act as an organ donor if it becomes possible.
Every day 18 people die because of the fact that an organ was not available to them. So you may very well be able to give the gift of life as a parting act, and in fact it is possible for a single donor to save as many as eight lives according to OrganDonor.gov.
A good Hartford CT estate planning lawyer can include your choice to act as an organ donor when he or she is drawing up your living Will. This is something to communicate to your attorney if you do in fact want to do what you can to help others should it be possible.
