Hey Steve and Scott, I think we need to get the message out that kidney donation is not hard on the downer and is a safe and very successful surgery. I notice that people think that donating an organ will be very dangerous and they( the downer ) will shorten their own life span. I don't know the statistics, but downers can live normal lives after donating a kidney ect. There is still such fear involved with donation. Nobody in my family even got tested when my twin Phil and myself needed a kidney transplant. I was on dyalisis for 6 years before I got my cadaver kidney.
