Anders on the subject of organ donation;
"For me it is important to take a stand on this issue and I hope that others will do that too . Over 800 people are waiting for a new organ in Sweden right now. By taking a stand for or against organ donation you make it easier on your loved ones in a difficult situation. If you stand for, you may even be saving lives!"
