Former and much maligned GM Jim Duquette donated a kidney to his daughter today in order to save her life.
And its a call to us all that you should register and tell your loved ones that you wish to donate your organs should you perish.
It has helped a number of people over the years from Phil Lesh to D*ck Cheney to Gary Coleman and on and on.
You can also tell your technician the next time you donate blood that you wish to be put on the National Registry for transplants. That way you will be notified and given the decision to donate blood, parts of a liver, bone marrow, etc should a match be found. You always have the option to say No.
