Why does Missouri need a registry?

Prior to the first person consent registry, the responsibility for giving consent for donation fell solely on the donor’s family. Unfortunately, family members were often unaware of their loved one’s wishes regarding donation. The Registry eliminates any doubt that a family member may have about your decision do be a donor. Inform your family of your wish about organ and tissue donation. You will have another opportunity when you register your decision or modify your registry record by informing family and friends with an email.
