(d) By a donor card or other record signed by the donor or other person making the gift; or
(e) By authorizing that a statement, symbol or designation indicating that the donor has made an anatomical gift is to be included on a donor registry.
(2) If the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under ORS 97.955 is physically unable to sign a record, the record may be signed by another individual at the direction of the donor or other person and must:
(a) Be witnessed by at least two adults, at least one of whom is a disinterested witness, who have signed at the request of the donor or the other person; and
(b) State that it has been signed and witnessed as provided in paragraph (a) of this subsection.
