What do I do next?

You should make the necessary arrangements well in advance, since family members need time to discuss this very important issue. It is important to share your wish to donate with your Senior Next-of-Kin and other family members. Ultimately, your Senior Next-of-Kin will be responsible for making sure your wishes are fulfilled.

Once you have decided you would like to donate, you have several options:
