The Logan County Coroner's Office encourages organ and tissue donation and approve the vast majority of donation requests under our jurisdiction. There are rare exceptions where limits may be placed due to the nature of the death or the involvement of law enforcement.
For family members, the death of a loved one is one of life's most difficult experiences. Donations give meaning to life, even after death. The decision to be a life saving donor may offer your family some comfort in knowing that your legacy carries on and you have made a difference in the lives of others.
Who among us... would not want to receive an organ or tissue if that donation could save our life or otherwise significantly improve our health? ...would not have a tremendous since of fulfillment through knowing that upon our death our organs and tissues, or those of someone we love, that were going to restore health, or life itself, to other human beings?
By registering your decision to be a donor, you get the opportunity to give other people a second chance at life. As an organ and tissue donor, you can help save and enhance lives of many people.
To become an organ and tissue donor, join Illinois' new organ/tissue donor consent registry. This is a confidential registry managed by the Illinois Secretary of State's Office.
