Kidney needed

May 23, 2011

The TaxProf passes on a touching plea: "My 13 Year Old Daughter Needs A Kidney. Can You Help?"

The girl is blood-type "O." You can learn more about her at this Facebook page. You can learn about living donor qualifications at the Iowa Donor Network.

Thousands of people die each year awaiting donor kidneys, while others only receive transplants after years of debilitating and expensive dialysis. Federal law bans compensated organ donations. By preventing willing and healthy people from getting paid for a kidney, the law kills thousands each year. Thanks, Al Gore.
