Organ Donation Prompt
By: Luke Hankins
“People dedicate their lives to save others.” An organ donation is when a donor decides to give one of their organs (kidney) to a member that might have their organ diseased. There is a long process to go through. First, the nurses test your blood to see if it is a match with the recipient. If it is then you go immediately to surgery. However, if the blood is not a match, then the nurses go through a certain process to match the blood. Next, after the major surgery they then put the kidney into a cooler with ice inside of it. Then, they put the healthy kidney inside of the recipient’s body. Finally, both the donor and recipient stay in the hospital for a couple of weeks to recover from the surgery. Before you think about if you are ready for this big change in your life, STOP and say “is this my job to do, is this why God put me here?” Do you think this is the right decision for you?
Let’s see about all of the organs that we can donate. Well unfortunately, you cannot donate every single organ, but you can donate a variety. Such as heart, lungs, liver, kidney, pancreas, intestines, cornea, skin, bone, and other tissues. Usually when someone needs a transplant, that could mean that their organ is badly damaged, diseased, or not functioning well. If after the transplant, your kidney’s were diseased then the old ones would shrivel up and eventually die while your new one does all of the work. Through organ donation, the donor’s kidney is carried in a cooler which is either delivered to another room or taken to another hospital by using Organ Donation. This transplant can help/save the person from a more well-known disease such as Polycystic Kidney Disease. This disease can cause your kidney’s to overgrow their actual size and cause pain for the person. On the other hand, Organ Donation can help save someone’s life that could’ve been dead but are now alive because of you. Just like Ben Johnson, his Dad was struggling at the time and he had PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease). He was thinking about donating his kidney to his Dad, but he also had second thoughts. He then thought about his Dad and how he most definitely didn’t want to lose anyone in his family. Two weeks after the decision, he found himself with one kidney. After two months, his Dad had fully recovered from the surgery and he was healthy as could be. How would you like if that was you? A hero! On the downsides, there are more and more recipients in need for kidneys and less and less people willing to donate. Eventually all of these special recipients waiting very patiently…..die.
So become a donor today and save someone’s life that would change forever because of you, their hero! That is the big, tremendous solution! That person that you could donate to, would definitely live a lot longer and enjoy their life because of you. Make someone smile today! Believe in yourself and make the decisions that are right for you. Be willing to save someone’s life right now before your change is forever gone. Make the choice that turns you into a hero!!
