I’ve said before I’m an overstuffed kid. But I really have a soft spot for companies & nonprofits that raise transplant awareness through toys.
I know organ trafficking is a huge issue in some countries. I don’t comment on it on my blog because it’s a tough situation.
I can understand why some patients would undertake the risk because of the massive shortage of organs.
So I was expecting this documentary to be grim & even possibly somewhat sensationalistic from the description. That could not be farther from the truth.
Healthcare issues aren’t nationalistic. When one country faces issues with accessing vital medicine or another important issue, others surely may follow suit.
Today is one of those days…
LAM Action & Tuberous Sclerosis Association friends, please take heed for future reference for those you serve who may have had transplants or may need them in the future. Even though it primarily affects renal transplantation & drugs now, it sets a dangerous precedent for similar problems with other organs.
