Thanks to my pal Brett and the anonymous commentor who pointed out that the April 4 episode of the sitcom "Scrubs" was titled "My Chopped Liver," and featured, of course, a live donor liver transplant from brother to brother. Unfortunately, I missed it. I'll pay $5 to anyone who can get me a video tape!
UPDATE: I got the tape. The episode was so-so, but I have to hand it to the make-up team, who apparently know how to make an actor look genuinely jaundiced.
In January 2006 I successfully donated half my liver to my brother, Joe. This blog began in November 2005, when I was just a hopeful donor candidate, and continues today as a vehicle for sharing my experience and building community among past, current, and would-be live organ donors and transplant recipients.

In 2007 I founded the Greatest Gift Foundation, which provides information and support to living organ donors throughout their transplant experience. I'm in Minneapolis, when I'm not traveling the country meeting with transplant teams. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
