I was reading through the issue of Glamour that was delivered a few days ago, and I came across an article about an FBI agent who donated his kidney to a complete stranger. The recipient was a young woman who had been exhausted from her dialysis treatments and was finding it difficult to do her job as a domestic violence victim court advocate. I was struck by how incredibly selfless his action was, and how he shrugged off the label "hero" and maintained that it was a simple thing to do for another human being. He said, "I was able to free her without a lot of pain and sacrifice. For me, that is reward enough." There's a video on youtube about the two of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecIbzSYna6w So my question is this: have any of you ever donated an organ to a loved one or someone else in need? Have you ever considered doing something like this, or have you had your own experiences with organ donation?
