Anastacya: Wow, this is such bullshiat. Mom thinks her precious snowflake is more deserving of a heart transplant than others. The kid is still a minor, which means that Mom is partially responsible for his lack of taking his medications and getting to appointments. Now that he is living on borrowed time, suddenly the importance of all that shiat he didn't do sinks in. Docs say no, she drops the race card, national news, and now someone who didn't care enough about his health several months ago gets bumped ahead of people who followed all of the rules.

Complete and utter bullshiat.

Chinchillazilla: Quantum Apostrophe: I thought we had a magical technology of some kind to make organs now?

From what I understand, we can grow the tissue, but I don't think we're able to make it grow in the right shape yet. Like how that lab-grown beef patty just didn't look right. That's fine if you're eating it, but not so fine if it's in charge of pumping your blood.


Actually you can make an organ the exact shape by cleaning out all the cells of a bad organ leaving you with the left over structure of the original organ which you can then use to shape growing cells into a new organ.

The only reason that grown burger was wierd looking and tasting was because they only grew muscle protein while real meat has fat. The article I read on it mentioned this can be fixed by having some cells become fat cells or whatever else is needed to replicate animal meat.

No kidding, kid was noncompliant with his medications even refusing to do some treatments on top of that was in trouble with the law. color me shocked to find out they get the civil rights involved to make an uproar.  Every life is worth saving, but he's already shown he is noncompliant TWICE already with his medication, they are SUPPOSE to say no end of question. Civil rights can biatch all they want he had a choice months ago to take his medications and he didn't now he needs a precious organ to survive.

Jesse Jackson can fist bump this win until the kid dies because he decided he didn't want to take his meds again, sad part is the hospital is powerless to do anything.

And? An unfortunate fact of life is that there are kids who die from severe health problems everyday. It is no less tragic, but I am sure there are other kids (and their parents) who are struggling with a debilitating and fatal disease but doing everything that they can to live longer and improve their quality of life. It makes no difference whether he is 15 or 25; neither he nor his parents cared enough (or maybe they didn't understand the severity of his situation) to follow medical instructions for his condition. Instead he didn't take his medications and missed doctor's appointments. He is old enough to understand that his actions have consequences.

You sound like a really fun person to be around.     I understand from your profile pictures that you are a very young adult, and so it is probable that you have not yet developed any understanding of childhood development, But this _child_ is 15, and this _child_ deserves a chance to live, regardless of whatever emotional fulfillment you gain from deciding that he and his family are just "those kind of people" who just can't be trusted.   Just so you know, I am a complete stranger, and you don't know me, but the impression that you have left on me today is that you are a small and petty and frankly a pretty shiatty human being.  (Don't worry, there are others in this thread, as well).

As someone who has a parent on the UNOS list (pancreas and kidney) this shiat pisses me off.  If what I've read is true, this kid has been show to be non-compliant on several occasions and yet gets another bite at the apple.  Whereas people like my mother have to wait even longer because you decided to circumvent the system.

What's the over/under on this kid getting a transplant and dying 6 months later due to not taking his meds/not going to follow up treatment?

/Probably a lot more than my uncle, but still.


This was before the consideration for his transplant. Seems like he showed no interest to take care of himself, so wouldn't that = a bad transplant candidate? Not even going to doctor visits?

On the other hand, he's a 15 year old kid, and I guess most 15 year olds are little shiats.

How is this racist? Is it because the kid is black?

EVERYONE, regardless of race must comply to the UNOS regulations to receive a transplant. If you don't comply, tough luck. Sucks that it has to be this way. This kid just exploited the publicity to get a transplant.

They are absolutely complete little shiats. 15 is a terrible age for boys. Additionally, the parts of their brains that understand risk and consequences literally is not developed yet, and will not be completely developed until around 25.

Hopefully, waking up after having a new heart installed, and feeling like (as I understand it) your chest has been run over by a truck will be a wake up call. Maybe it won't, but at least we get to live in a society that cares enough to try to help. Almost seems like something some guy whose name I can't think of would do. 2000 years ago? They trot him out in election years?
 
2013-08-14 07:05:58 PM

2013-08-14 07:06:06 PM
if you aren't able to pay you most likely will not get a transplant of any kind.  medicare/medicaid recipients will not get a transplant if someone with a blue cross type of insurance is waiting in line.  medications are expensive.  people want their money.

There are many cases of people appealing the decisions of transplant committees, many of those people have died waiting.  I'm not seeing any compelling reason to give this kid a second chance above anyone else.

If his procedure doesn't bump another willing participant, go for it.  That is HIGHLY unlikely though

Benevolent Misanthrope: I do wonder what the difference would have been if he had been a white kid who has a problem doing what he's told and engages routinely in self-destructive behavior.


None. Doctors don't like to waste their time with non-compliant patients. They're also a source of legal liability that the doctor and the hospital don't want, especially if they already know he's non-compliant.
 
2013-08-14 07:16:28 PM
That is ridiculous! If he has a history of noncompliance and a social support system that wasn't even able to get him to comply with attending school, how in the hell are they going to be able to manage a complicated medication regimen, regular follow-ups, and all the socio/psychological issues that come from receiving a heart. It is a sad that a young person might die, but when you have so few hearts available you have got to be very picky about who gets them. It is an incredible responsibility for anyone to assume, but if he and the family already have issues, he shouldn't be on the list. I have seen several of these patients who had "borderline" social or psych evals fail miserably and end up dead because they couldn't manage the tasks they needed to in order to keep that new heart healthy. I work in invasive cardiology at a transplant center.

In the real world, adults have to make decisions about scarce resources.  They can make them on the basis of facts and evidence and experience of what has worked in the past - or they can make them based on hysteria about race.

By the way, the Stokes' Doctor is a black guy.  But don't let that stop you from assuming that any time a black person doesn't get what they want - it must be a racist conspiracy.

Like Mickey Mantle getting a new liver.  If you have the name you're in the game.

OnlyM3: Quantum Apostrophe
In the meantime, I signed my organ donor card, you??

I had, but this bullshiat has made me decide to reverse that decision.


I hope you're lying for dramatic effect. Don't punish the whole for the actions of the few.

Hell, if Steve Jobs can jump ahead of everybody to get a liver, the kid's even more deserving.

Is this covered under ObamaCare?

jso2897: I just read the article, and a couple of others. There is no real information on this - the official reasons for the denial and subsequent reversal are confidential, and have not been released.- all we have are the speculations of Anthony's emotionally distraught and marginally educated mom, and those of a bunch of crappy interweb "journalists"


And lawyers.  Don't forget the lawyers.

Is that what we're calling being black now?


must be because they never said exactly what his "non compliance" violations were.
matter of fact he just found out he needed a heart from what I saw on our local news.

h2ogate: The guy who is now second in line is thrilled about it.  Oh, wait -- now he's dead.


He was always second in line.  Or did you miss that lesson in kindergarten about how we have to wait in line and not skip ahead.
