dc.description.abstractMany people wish to help others—through family, friends, or even strangers. Whether this desire
 is a manifestation of altruism proposed as common to all humans26 or simply of one’s
 personality, its fruits need not stop at death. Promoted as giving the “gift of life” by the United
 Network for Organ Sharing and many donor organizations,33 donating one’s organs can save or
 help as many as 50 people.17
 There are, however, many challenges associated with organ donation. This essay focuses on the
 role of the family—specifically, families of racial minority background—in contributing to the
 organ donation shortage. It considers ethical standards such as informed choice and respect for
 autonomy to propose that education of the family unit would increase the number of organs
 ultimately donated.
