Kidney Donation at my University

The President of my university, Minnesota State University, is being prepped (as I type this) to have a kidney transplant. An employee of the university has donated one of her kidneys to President Richard Davenport. I wish him a speedy recovery and I wish the donor a speedy recovery herself.

It's too bad that we have to rely on donors to supply the organs needed for transplant. Altruism only goes so far.
