"I am what you call a matchmaker," Rosenbaum said in a secretly recorded conversation. Asked how many organs he had brokered, he said: "Quite a lot".
But... the problem that might hold a lot of people back from donating a kidney is the thought, "what happens if my sole remaining kidney fails? Can I get my old one back? It is too risky... I heard of a solution that I totally agree with. Anyone who ever donates a kidney is automatically put to the front of the list if THEIR remaining kidney fails. And also if that one fails. So by donating a kidney there is no risk of you dying for lack of a kidney yourself. Certainly sounds very fair to me.
