Decision to donate organs should be a family affair
Cal for Answers • Touch* ton* or Rotary Phono* 14)00-454-3535 aid. code 540* im par mr
’ DEAR ABBY: There is a widespread public misconception that needs to be cleared up. Americans need to know that family consent, nf>t a donor card, is required for organ donation to occur. Hospital personnel always require the consent cf next-of-kin before procuring organa. Organ donor cards are effective only if they provide a stimulus for family discussions about the intention to become an organ donor, and the potential donor makes plain to his or her family the desire to make the donation.
In 1995, a review of medical records of deceased patients revealed that there were approximately 13,000 to 15,000 potential organ donors. But only about 5,346 individuals actually donated, despite the fact that the American public overwhelmingly supports organ donation.
Thanks in advance for your help inclosing this unfortunate gap.
TANA SHERMAN, PARTNERSHIP FOR ORGAN DONATION, BOSTON
DEAR TANA: Thank you for ap important tetter. Discussing one’s desire to be an organ donor is a vital step in the organ donation process. When people sign donor cards, they pike a commitment and empress their wishes to be vital organ donors at the time of their death. But if family members are unaware of a potential donors wishes, they can — and often do — react negatively when they are approached and asked to give their consent. If familia understand in advance, there could be an estimated additional 16,000 transplants each year.
I will continue to urge my readers to sign organ donor cards and to discuss their wishes with their families. I believe that most families will agree to respect the wishes of their loved ones.

DEAR ABBY: I am in my early 20s and have been married for three years. My husband’s first wife died eight years ago, but he keeps her memory alive. Her wheelchair is still in the comer of our bedroom, and he has everything she owned.
My question is: When does she die? When should he get rid of her things? I feel like I’m competing with a dead woman; I feel haunted. You are the only person I can talk to. I have fib other friends. I would like to have counseling but cannot afford it. I am an emotional wreck.

DEAR CONFUSED: Tell your hueband what you have told me, and give him a month to get her things out of the house, with the understanding that if he doesn’t, you will call a local charity that will accept them.
(It occurred to me that you could sell the items and use the money for counseling, but I have a hunch that this will be quicker and just as effective.)

DEAR ABBY: On a quick trip to the grocery store, an obviously caring mother left her two small children in the car with the keys in the ignition and the motor running to keep the air conditioner on, as it was a very hot day.
I watched in horror as the two little ones tried to “drive’’ — twisting the steering wheel and turning the lights on and off. Then one of the children started to play with the buttons that raised and lowered the windows. I was afraid that one of them would get an arm — or maybe a head — caught in the window, so I rushed into the store and told the mother I was worried about her children.
Without uttering a word, she marched out of the store, put down the windows, turned off the motor and removed the car kevs.
Abby, please warn parents never
to leave small children in cars with the motor running. They could easily be kidnapped in a carjacking — or push the car out of gear to roll into traffic.
One family I knew lost a son when his neck was caught in a closing window.

DEAR SMALL TOWN: Your tetter should be rn reminder to all who drive automobiles: NEVER leave small children unattended in an automobile. Keep them with you. The child who’s snatched or injured could be your own.
