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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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!
