My Mom Needs Me, But I Can't Help HerMy mom has renal kidney failure. She needs a kidney & a pancreas. I would've gladly have given her a kidney in a heartbeat, but I don't have the same blood type as her.
I'd long considered becoming an organ donor even before my mom got sick: why not give people something that could save their lives, especially when you're no longer using it? when I finally get my driver's permit 1 of the 1st things I asked about was becoming an organ donor.
If anybody who matches me (blood type & everthing else that needs to match) needed a kidney, I would give it to them in a heartbeat. After all, I can get along just fine with 1.
