A Second Chance

As I write this, a friend is getting a second chance at life.

After nearly four years on a waiting list, Ted is getting a new kidney. He's been doing home dialysis for a very long time and taken many medications in preparation for this event. It is sad that a family lost a loved one, but good to know that even in death, someone is bringing second chances to many people.

If you haven't already, please consider being an organ donor AND notify your loved ones of this important decision to give life to others who need it. My license notes this designation and odds are, your state will just have you fill a simple affidavit when you renew your driver's license or non-driver ID.

Have you considered donation? If so, have you shared your decision?
