Yes, it's more about Joe. But that's just because I am excited. He is back to work this week, and this time, it's official (he has his medical license renewed, and everything). He posted something cheery on his blog a couple of days ago. And I get to go visit him this weekend in Chicago, as part of a last-minute junket to cheer on Amanda as she runs the Chicago marathon. (Having been through one of our own with this whole transplant thing, it'll be nice to watch someone else do the work for a change.)
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 email@example.com.
