Transplant chain

Fascinating story in the Times about a chain of people who each donated kidneys to help someone else.

A few years ago, one of my cousins asked us all to be tested as kidney donors. I didn’t do it; I felt bad, but since my employment (and thus, my health coverage) has been so unstable, I didn’t want to risk the long-term side effects without insurance. (She did eventually get a donor and is fine now.)
