I would love to be able to do this myself!! I've already expressed my wishes for my family to pull the plug if I'm in a coma and it looks like I'm not going to make it, so why not grab my organs, blood, and other tissues right before that? It saves my family from the burden of medical debt and helps others simultaneously.
