Logan and I love to see news of others that have received a new organ. Recently in San Francisco there was a 6-way kidney exchange: http://www.wired.com/2015/03/science-behind-crazy-6-way-kidney-exchange/
The kidney is a more common transplanted organ, and also in higher demand. It’s a fickle organ that is very sensitive to changes in the immune system. A live transplant also lasts twice as long as a deceased donor. All these factors make it more difficult, but beneficial to find a live donor match. For these people, they received a kidney from a stranger and in response, someone close to them donated a kidney to a stranger.
It’s where medicine meets math and technology, as Logan posted in January: the math of organ donation. We are very happy for those 6 people!
