I heard a story about a 15-year old girl who needs to have a kidney transplant in order to live. Her mother put the word out via her blog, Twitter, and other social networks. I thought about how I was using social networking in a similar way to beg for Inauguration tickets and I felt humbled...so humbled, in fact, that I wrote to the nurse at the hospital that was managing the girl's possible kidney transplant to find out if a person with MS can be a kidney donor.
And that's when I found out that I not only have a defective brain, but substandard kidneys as well. Multiple Sclerosis is on the list of contraindications.
How about you? Do you have a spare kidney? Apparently, you only really need one. Visit the link above to see if you could become this family's hero.
