Nice that the guy in the coma lasted this long.

So, he donates marrow and eventually gets a really bad kidney problem. I'm not sure karma likes him that much. Makes you wonder what terrible thing will go wrong with the anonymous kidney donor.

Robert Miller, 68, is currently recovering from a life-saving kidney transplant, given to him by an anonymous donor.

The people who write these stories can never tell the difference between kidneys and livers. People live on dialysis (that's the kidney one) for years. It's not great, but living with a transplant isn't perfect, either.

When I was in my 20s some kid needed something, I offered to donate something.  Every year or so, 40 years later, I get postal mail saying basically "yeah, we know who you are and where you live".

/ don't have a problem with that
// I've made damned sure all my organs are perfectly preserved in an alcohol solution
/// Need an organ?  Long as it's not the liver we're good to go.  For half of them just make sure I'm dead first.
