How do you sign up to participate in a living organ donor registry?

Contact a center: It is as easy as calling a transplant center and asking them for an appointment. Actually getting on the registry is a bit harder. You will have to undergo medical testing to make sure you are healthy enough to donate and psycological testing to ensure you are making an informed competent decision. Once you give it away you can't get it back.
