I’ll admit my first thought about doing this was motivated by an article I had read several years ago about a person’s experience at having received a kidney from an anonymous donor. I wish I still had the link to it. I was moved, but not enough. Later I saw and read this from my friend Bryce.
Having had someone this close to me benefit from a living donor motivated me even more, but I still put it off. I don’t have a really good reason for why I am finally starting the process at this particular moment, but I think that’s irrelevant. I’m doing it and that’s all that matters now.
