Voice 3: "We hope that this new method will prove successful for more patients. Then distance does not need to be a problem. We can take donor hearts anywhere in the world. This will make it much easier for people to find the correct donor organ."
Voice 1: Doctors may be able to extend the life of a donor organ. But there is still one difficult issue to deal with. Donor hearts have to be donated. Doctors need families to permit them to remove organs. It is not always easy for families to do this. Donors are often young people who have died suddenly and unexpectedly. Their families are often in shock. It is difficult to think clearly in these situations. But people like Richard Taylor talked about the issue before he died. He had made his wishes clear to his family. His father says that this made things easier for him. He knew he was doing what Richard wanted.
