Nothing In Life Worth Doing Is Easy

What I learned throughout the process of being tested and cleared to donate is that I would likely be in the worst pain I have ever experienced, that I was giving up something that my body did not understand nor want to give up, and that not only would it be physically demanding but would likely take a toll on me emotionally as well. What I can say is that when I donated my kidney, I felt like I truly had not given up anything and instead, I gained everything. 

Asking for life?

The most important thing to remember though is that AWARENESS IS KEY. The more people that know about your need, the better your odds are of finding that one person who hears that little voice in their head saying "yeah I can do that."
