It’s time.

Standard

I met someone recently who has had a kidney transplant, is under 40, and lives with the threat that the organ will be rejected at any time by the body. Other than that person’s ordeal which has affected every aspect of life, I came away convinced of two things.

One, I will do everything to ensure that I do not ever need such palliative care that neither makes me a vegetable nor sets me free.

Two, I will donate as many of my viable organs as possible. The donor lists in India are so long and scary that you constantly have to wait for people to die, to get a chance at life. Please donate your organs and convince people around you to do the same.
