UNOS had this excellent video posted to their Facebook page last month.
I think it makes a very straightforward & practical explanation of the list & how it works in a way people can relate to.
I know I struggle to really boil it down to people in a way that’s easy to grasp, so I am so glad they posted this video to their social media page & hope they will add it sometime soon to their website.

I’m not one for football.
I never have been (though I have tried to be at times), but I couldn’t resist sharing this unique story.
Especially because it involves babies, who are the tiniest yet fiercest warriors I know at times. Their resilience always humbles me.
I found this story on the LifeBanc Facebook page awhile ago & had flagged it to read in the future. When I did read it, I was moved to tears.
I’m not going to say more about it. The story speaks for itself & stands alone in its uniqueness.
Frank Bodino’s story is incredible. Read it for yourself here.
Yet, what’s even more incredible is how he’s being re-listed through a novel program after being turned down by 4 other centers even with his relentless dedication to taking care of his donor heart.
While I love the Young Turks, I’m torn on this video. Both Cenk & Ana seem to say they understand the transplant process but they oversimplify the decisions that go into listing & selecting candidates for transplant, whether they are adults, or in this case, children.
