After another amazing day volunteering at DeQuattro Cancer Center, I went to renew my drivers license. I brought all of my paperwork for the new Real ID federal verification. They now stamp a gold star on your license as a national security measure and to protect your identity.
I had been thinking about becoming an organ donor, but something just scared me about it. I couldn't put my finger on it. I think my fear of all of the surgeries I have been through was coming to the surface. I know this is irrational because the organ donation would be after I pass away. Still, I had a knot in my stomach trying to decide.
I walked into the AAA license renewal building, and I still had not made up my mind about becoming an organ donor. It wasn't until I was standing in line and looked over at a brochure that said, "You have the power to donate life." That was it... I wasn't scared anymore. I knew that if I had the chance to save someones life, there was no question that I would <3
