I am a live donor. I gave my aunt my kidney in Feb.2007. She feels great and has so much energy, I remember dialasis was awful for her she was finally put an nocternail perataniel(big words I cant spell). The day she was put on the list I got an appointment for crossmatching. I was the only person in the family who made it past the phone interview. After 6 months of testing, poking, and proding, we went in for surgery. Iwould do it all over again, to know you can help someone like that is amazing. If you have a live donor make sure they talk to someone who has been through this, thereis alot the transplant team doesnt prepare the donor for.
