“Dear PoPville,

I would love to hear if anyone has experience with being a living liver donor. A friend of a friends kid needs a new one and mine is in great shape so I am putting my organ into the pool of options to help if ultimately selected and would like to hear from those who have been through it especially locally.

There is a lot bad in the world and this is something I can offer to create a small amount of good that I’m sure would mean a lot to the kid and family needing some help. Obviously this is time sensitive and on the heals of the Emergency Room discussion this would take place at Georgetown Medstar. FYI-feds get 4 weeks paid leave covered outside of personal or sick leave to donate and there are long waiting lists.”
