Here's a link to Barnes Jewish transplant program. I'm posting this to remind people to be an organ donor. Also, think about being a live donor for a kidney patient. Only a quarter of the people waiting on a kidney will get one this year. There is a recent study, posted on this blog, that shows live donors live normal lives and have normal life spans after surgery.
I'm waiting for a kidney transplant. I have some great friends who've volunteered to give me a kidney and hopefully one of them will be a match. If you'd like to be a kidney donor for me please let me know. All it takes is a simple blood test and a kind heart to get started.
Please consider giving a kidney to someone. I'm luck to have a few people lined up for testing. There are lots of people who have been on dialysis for years that need a donor. Be a hero. Give a kidney.
