How does someone revoke their wish to be an organ donor?
There are several ways to revoke a document and decision to be an organ donor:
(1) By signing a document or statement indicating that you no longer agree to the anatomical gift;
(2) By making an oral statement in the presence of two witnesses;
(3) By communicating your wishes to a physician during a terminal illness or injury;
(4) By delivering a signed revocation to a designated recipient.
If your will was amended to include the anatomical gift, you should see that the revocation is made in your will, though the four methods above will also serve to revoke the decision in your will.
In addition, it is best to destroy the original donation form and send a copy of the revocation to anyone who has a copy of your previous donation form. Also communicate the change in your decision to family members. If the original donation request is designated on your driver's license, contact the driver's license administration office and the agency responsible for organ donations in your state to see what you should do to have the decision revoked.
