Anothert DM post from this site
I am the co-founder of the Jesus Christians, who were featured on a recent CNN Report ("Body Parts") in relation to a member who donated a kidney last year. There are several of our members who have expressed an interest in donating a liver lobe (or possibly even a lung lobe) if they knew of someone in need and if there was a way open to do so.
Anyone interested should probably check out the forum message board where there has been a lot of debate over the way the Jesus Christians were portrayed on CNN. They falsely accused us of being coerced into donating (something never even mentioned in media coverage before this). However, if nothing else, the report makes it clear that we are real people and that some of us really have donated.
We have not had much difficulty in finding hospitals in the U.S. who would perform kidney transplants, but we do not know what the situation is with regard to either non-directed or privately arranged donations of liver or lung lobes. We would be depending on the recipient to check that stuff out for us.
