I am so impressed by that lady's decision. I am a regular blood donor, and I am registered for bone marrow donation, but giving a kidney is still beyond me. I hope I can be as generous as her someday. Way to go!

Or could be a blessing in disguise for the donor ...

Way to go Heather! Always thinking about others. Heather was NBC Biggest Loser from Utah years ago!

Donating a kidney is NO BIG DEAL. It's also a common event, and 99% of the donors and recipients never seek publicity.

Been there, done that. 1998.

Reasonable Person: I've also donated a kidney and it is a big deal. I saw my daughter get a real life. What a wonderful experience! And if the donor is someone like Heather, who is willing to give a kidney to a total stranger, then it is a very big deal and it deserves to hit the paper. If only we had more people like Heather in the world.

So Reasonable Person, you are now in the 1% of all donors and recipients who do seek publicity!
