There are a number of ways to register to be a donor:
- You can register on-line by going to www.DonateLifeFlorida.org. This only takes a few minutes.
- You can also register through the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you live in a county where driver’s licenses and state ID’s are issued by the Tax Collector, it is also possible to register when you visit a local office.
- If you would like to fill out a paper registration, please call 1-800-232-2892 and one will be mailed to you.
- You can register through your iPhone Health App.
In the state of Florida, when someone documents his or her wish to be a donor, it is legally binding (similar to a living will) and it is not required to obtain consent from the legal Next of Kin/Healthcare surrogate (http://law.onecle.com/florida/civil-rights/765.512.html). Only the person who has designated his or her wish to be a donor can revoke the decision and/or make any changes to the designation. A family member, guardian, representative ad litem, or health care surrogate may not modify, deny, or prevent a donor’s wish or intent to make an anatomical gift after the donor’s death.
We encourage you to share your decision to be a donor with your loved ones!
Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency will provide guidance, support and additional information throughout the donation process to all donor families irrespective of their loved ones’ donor designation status.
