article gives a good overview of living kidney donation
in the UK, especially for potential living donors who’d like to
donate to a stranger. Check it out.
Thanks to an alert reader, I learned that the above is a sidebar to the real article, the story of Di Franks, who recently pushed through the system to donate one of her kidneys to a stranger. Until pretty recently, donation by strangers was not allowed in the UK.
“I wanted to change someone’s life, I had two perfectly healthy kidneys so why shouldn’t someone have one of mine.”
The article is worth a read. Lots of great quotes from Di. She didn’t get to meet her recipient but knows that he or she is doing well.
Congrats to Di Franks for swimming upstream and doing something extraordinary.
