I saw a tweet in January 2011 from a woman whose mother was put on the kidney donation list. It would take her 2-6 years to get one, and she wouldn't live that long. So, I volunteered and donated on April 19, 2011.
I am now making a documentary about live organ donation. I'll be traveling cross-country to meet other donors who I've connected with via Social Media. I'll be on the road for the month of May 2013.
