Aren't I too old to donate organs?
Many clients are joking when they ask but the misconception that their is an age limit for donation leads many who can and would be donors not to take the steps to volunteer.
While there are diseases such as cancer and AIDS that prevent donation, there is no age limit on donors. As doctors we have worked with have explained, if you have a critical organ failing that is difficult to match, the healthy organ of an 80 year old that is a decent match is going to be much better than what you have. Matches at that age and above are not uncommon and save lives. So don't write off your organs yet!
