A close friend just told me "Naijaluv, you are an amazing friend, I love you, if you ever needed a kidney, I'd donate it to you". Guaranteed it was 2am, and she was drunk when she said this, I still found it touching, because I'd do likewise. It had me wondering of all the people I would willing donate a body organ to, at least one like a kidney, bone marrow and stuff, that wouldnt wipe away my existence. I have a vast list of family and friends to whom I'd happily live with 1 kidney to see survive if I turned out to be a good match. You can exist fully on 1 kidney, mortality rates are less than 0.1%, meaning your chance of undergoing any longterm damage is basically 0!
I'm also on the Bone Marrow Registry, so someday I might get an random call saying I'm a match to a stranger.
My question is would you donate, why/whynot and to whom?
