A. A donor may make an anatomical gift by any of the following:
(1) Authorizing a statement or symbol indicating that he has made an anatomical gift to be imprinted on his driver's license or identification card.
(2) Executing a will.
(3) Any form of communication addressed to at least two adults, at least one of whom is a disinterested witness, during a terminal illness or injury.
B. A donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift pursuant to R.S. 17:2352 may make a gift by a donor card or other record signed by the person making the gift or by authorizing that a statement or symbol indicating that a gift has been made be included on a donor registry. If the donor or other person is physically unable to sign a record, the record may be signed by another person at the direction of the person making the gift and the record shall:
(1) Be witnessed by two adults, one of whom is a disinterested witness, who have signed at the request of the person making the gift; and
(2) State that it has been signed and witnessed as provided in Paragraph (1) of this Subsection.
C. Revocation, suspension, expiration, or cancellation of a driver's license or identification card upon which an anatomical gift is indicated does not invalidate the gift.
D. An anatomical gift executed in a will takes effect upon the death of the donor whether or not the will is probated. Invalidation of the will after the death of the donor does not invalidate the gift.
