Becoming a living donor, if your proven to be fit and healthy, is a relatively simple procedure and considering it saves a life, its a bit of a no brianer! If you know someone in need of a kidney and perhaps have just not thought about the possibility of being a donor for them, have a listen to comedian Jarleth Regan's podcast who donated one of his kidneys to his brother. Not only is it a very interesting and informative listen, sometimes funny and sometimes emotional, but it might just make you think a little more about the power you possess to save a life. Thank you Jarleth for allowing us to share this. You are a mighty human being!
And if you shuffle this mortal coil, being a deceased donor can save multiple lives and what better legacy to leave behind than that. Nobody should ever die waiting on a donor list. Not ever! The more it is talked about, the more knowledgeable people are about it, the more awareness that is brought to the simplicity of it. Carry a donor card and/or discuss your wishes with your loved ones. Simple as that!
