I am considering being a living donor...

I am considering being an anonymous donor of my liver. I feel like I need to help somebody since I have a perfectly good organ that I am not fully using. Plus....it will regenerate. What are your thoughts?

  • I am in such poor health that I do not have a healthy organ to donate. I had a stroke in 1997, a majot heart attack in 99. blood clots throughout my body a month after my heart attack which affected all my organs. Bad eyesight, diabetes and emphesema. God bless you for having the courage to donate tho.

  • I`ve thought about it too, and I think it is a very noble thing to do. Ultimately, I have decided that me going through a difficult, and unnecessary surgery would be too hard on my family right now.
