Diane Franks founder of Living Kidney Donation

     Name: Di Franks

 

     Country: England
 

     Altruistic Kidney Donation: July 2010

 
 
Di is an altruistic kidney donor and did not know before her operation who her kidney was going to. She tells her story in great details on her own website.
 
When Di Franks asked her doctor about donating her kidney, she wasn't sure she would be taken seriously.
Because Di wasn't giving her healthy organ to a sick and needy relative.. she wanted to donate it to a complete stranger.
Five years ago it was illegal to give a kidney to someone you didn't know in this country. 
When it was made legal, inspired by a friend in the US who had themselves donated a kidney, Di was faced with the extraordinary choice.
Should she undergo a major operation to remove a vital organ to help someone she would probably never know? Not only was she was risking her own life, the choice could have consequences for her son and the rest of her family if they ever needed her organ...
 

Lilli has written a book about her living organ donation. It can be purchased at Amazon.com under Donor Girl. Her goal is to help other potential donors understand the process from beginning to end. This is only one story, and there are many. However, she believe all donors share certain thoughts; whether it be fear, joy or wonder. She hope this book helps people that are considering donation. I also hope it can help recipients to better understand what their donor might be experiencing.

Lilli Adams donated her kidney to her sister's husband, David Hornby, on July 11, 2007. There is no greater feeling than knowing that you saved another person's life.

There are so many wonderful stories of living organ donation. If you are considering being a living organ donor, contact your nearest transplant center about being a non-directed organ donor. They will find someone who needs your generous gift of life.

Mike heard from his friend Stephen and his need for Kidney Transplaent in November 2007. Mike offered but had to lost 50lbs and started the YouTube Channel FirehouseMike to keep Stephen updated with his progress because they lived miles apart. The Kidney Donation was done on 5th April 2008 in Missouri, USA.

 

In July 2013 a new 'Firehouse Mike Intro' video confirming 5 years on that both donor & recipent are still doing well. His Kidney Transplants in the News youtube playlist and other varied interests you might find on his channel.

Raph M1K has been an adventuring Living Organ Donor since 2007...

MySpace.com/Minus1Kidney was created soon after Raph M1K transplant in May 2007 and is still being maintain as a trophy peace for lives of new adventures.

facebook.com/Minus1Kidney was then started by Raph M1K in 2008 to get a bit more interactive and since then he has been meeting other donors.

It wasn't until 2010 that Raph M1K started to meet other donors in person and collected a few photo for facebook. For the year 2010, statistic show in the UK alone there were about 1,037 living donor transplants. After about 50 years of transplants happening all round the world, they seems to disappear back to their normal lives.

In 2011 Raph M1K registered the website www.Minus1Kidney.com hoping to properly share the title with other donors and the world.

2012 was all about Raph M1K Olympic Adventures.

2013 Raph M1K is working away from his home based in the UK but still this raising awareness on his travels.
