Are you a fan of “House of Cards”, a Netflix series? This season’s Episodes 5 and 6 revolve around the main character, Frank Underwood needing a liver transplant. He receives one from the waiting list after a subordinate manipulates the list to give him priority, causing the death of another man who is waiting for a liver.

These fictional stories are not always accurate, but they do provide some much needed exposure to organ donation.

There are 100,500 people waiting for a kidney transplant and 15,000 waiting for a liver. In 2015 there were 5,989 living kidney transplants and only 359 living liver transplants. The surgical procedure for liver donors is much more involved than the one for kidneys. If you want to read a summary of the Netflix plot and more information about living liver transplants click here.


Can you suggest another way to let others know about your need? Please share it with us by Clicking Here and we will include in in a future Tuesdays With... update.

If you know someone else in need of a kidney transplant or would like to pass this on to your doctor or a dialysis/transplant social worker please provide him or her with this link:

Until next week, we wish you the best in your journey.
