Re: sad news re:live donor transplant

This is a known risk, but a low risk, to the donor when participating in a live donor transplant procedure.

I can assure you the hospitals take more than just precautions when candidates are finally selected for this surgery. My oldest daughter Jennifer was my live donor and she went through the identical battery of tests I did when I was testing for entry to the Mayo transplant program.

I wrote about this sad news on my blog, www.kimkircher.com.  My heart is heavy for the Arnold family.  I truly hope that this news does not hamper the life saving work in living donor transplantation.
