But “Why do this?” you ask.

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.

  1. Todd, the courage that you have is something that most of us don’t have. I am proud of you. I have thought lots of times that I’d give my heart and my soul for my kids (and I would)…right now, I’m not sure my body is healthy enough to give them anything that would help. The fact that you are doing this for a stranger speaks volumes of the person that you are. Bravo my man…keep us updated. Again, very proud of you!
