At a certain moment a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that,
for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped.
When that happens don’t call this my “DEATH BED”, call it my "BED OF LIFE" and let my body be used by others to lead fuller lives.
Give my eyes to a man who has never seen sunrise, a baby’s face or love in the eyes of a woman.
Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain.
Give my blood to the teenager, who has been pulled from the wreckage of his Car,
so that he might live to see his grandchildren play.
Give my kidneys to one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week.
Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and every nerve
From my body to find a way to make a crippled child work.
Explore every corner of my brain, take my cells and let them grow so that somebody,
a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her window.
Burn what is left of me And scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow If you must bury something,
let it be my faults, my wicknesses And all my prejudice against my fellowmen.
Give my sins to the devil and give my soul to God, If you do what I have asked,
I WILL LIVE……………FOREVER
-Robert N.Test, 1968
For us at Mokshshil, every human being is a blessed one! We wish that all of you could live a hundred years!! Yes, we could die at any age, but we could still be alive, by allowing others to live through us! By giving of ourselves in the highest way possible. It is a harbinger of light, which hopes and plans to dispel all doubts and myths regarding organ and tissue donation, though awareness and educational campaigns. As Albert Einstein has aptly said, 'The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking'. We, at Mokshshil, invite you to remove all your misconceptions about organ donation, and allow us to begin with a clean slate.
"You Could Save A Life, Today!"
To understand Organ Donation, it is first important to understand Organ Transplants. A transplant is a medical procedure where one person’s dysfunctional organ or tissue is replaced by that of a healthy person, thus restoring its function. In certain cases, despite major advances in Medical Science, transplant is the only alternative. Transplants drastically improve the quality of life of the patient and give them another chance to live.
To state the obvious, a transplant can only take place if there is an organ available from a donor.
There are two situations under which Organ donation occur- when the person making the donation is alive (Live Donations) or after the person dies (Deceased Donations).
