Great story! It's a lesson that all people that need organs should learn from. Talk to anyone that you meet, post on social sites, anything to get the word out that you need help. The more you can get it out there, the better chance you have to get an organ sooner. My wife gave a kidney to a friend from her past when she received an email from another friend that told of their old friend's need. 8 months later she gave her kidney to him and everything is great. He is now a member of our family and we of his. Strangely enough, my wife also works at 3M. Seeing what a great experience this was and how it affected his life, I gave mine anonymously to another. She has since contacted us and is doing great. Also, her family became ours and ours hers. It's amazing to see how such a gift can affect people's lives. We were lucky enough to be able to help and has been very rewarding for us. I feel we were given a gift, not them. Please consider donation, it can be a gift for yourself!
