According to the UK Transplant website, you definitely canít donate your organs if you have Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) or Human Immunosufficiciency Virus (HIV). But you may be able to donate if you have any other medical condition (including cancer), now or in the past. Doctors consider each case individually.After someone dies, a health professional carefully considers the personsí medical history. They then make a decision about whether or not some or all of the personís organs or tissue are suitable for transplant. Unfortunately, this means that you wonít know beforehand if you can actually be a donor.You can read more about this on the UK transplant website.
Thanks RD. Did you say something about neurofibromatosis and the nerves still being genetically me and then remove it or am i hulluciinating? haha 
Chemotherapy (anticancer drugs) may also be offered when the tumors associated with NF are malignant. This occurs in less than 10% of persons who have NF.
People with NF1 can donate their blood and organs to other people who are in need of blood or an organ transplant. The person who receives their blood and/or organs will not develop NF1 as a result of the blood/organ donation
Researchers funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) have found that an organ transplant drug might one day be used to treat meningioma, a type of brain tumor. The drug also could be used to treat neurofibromatosis type 2......triggered by abnormal activity of a protein called mTOR, which promotes cell growth and is inhibited by rapamycin.....they found that mTOR is abnormally active in NF2-deficient cells derived from patients with meningioma
