    Live Donation

    In February, 2015 my brother’s son donated half a lobe of his liver to my sister’s husband. Both are well and recovering. We are incredibly grateful for the love of nephew for his uncle, modern medicine and prayers.

    Please remember that just putting donor on your drivers license is not enough. One must have a written will with donation preferences. As well as parental concent for minors and even power of attorney in cases when the parents are unable to give permission. Thanks from a 17 year post liver transplant recipient.
