Back in the year 2000, I received a skin donation from someone I will never know. I think about how someone's unselfish act aided a recovery the doctors called "astounding" and it still warms my heart. They took skin off a dead body and gave it to me. Click here to read my full story. It's not just major organs that could help other people.

We spoke with Betsy Miner-Swartz about some amazing stories from Michigan and the work she is doing.

As soon as I could, I registered at the Secretary of State to give all my organs when I go. I have the heart on my license and encourage you to do the same. A story that inspires me to this day, is the story of Jason Ray.

I have heard people say, "if you are in an accident, they won't save you because they want your organs!"

I don't know what kind of moron started spreading this rumor but it's unethical and incorrect.

The stories above are more powerful than people allowing their organs to become worm food.
