You cannot sell organs ~ We cannot buy an organ

In the recent past we have gotten queries from people offering their kidney FOR PAYMENT — while we are anxious to get our loved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and brother a new kidney, it is ILLEGAL to sell or buy a kidney in the United States.

“Organ trafficking is possibly one of the most covert forms of human trafficking. A global shortage of organs has driven the industry, relying on poor populations to be donors and wealthy foreigners to be recipients.” (https://bit.ly/39oJchp)

We appreciate the efforts to get Del a kidney, but we cannot BUY one.

6 yrs on Dialysis…Del Du-Bois desperately needs a Type-O kidney.
Del is registered at RWJ Barnabas in NJ, https://bit.ly/3qeJNbt
Please give Del’s name when you call.
Even if you aren’t Type O, you can start a chain donation in Del’s name.

42 U.S. Code § 274e – Prohibition of organ purchases

Prohibition: It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human organ for valuable consideration for use in human transplantation if the transfer affects interstate commerce. The preceding sentence does not apply with respect to human organ paired donation.
The term “human organ” means the human (including fetal) kidney, liver, heart, lung, pancreas, bone marrow, cornea, eye, bone, and skin or any subpart thereof and any other human organ (or any subpart thereof, including that derived from a fetus) specified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services by regulation.

  • Selling Organs: The National Organ Transplant Act Under the federal National Organ Transplant Act of 1984 (NOTA) — found in Title 42, section 274e of the U.S. Code — anyone convicted of buying or selling human organs in the United States faces a five-year prison sentence and/or a fine of up to $50,000.   (from FindLaw)

Wishing for lots of things to be thankful about…

Wishing you an early Happy Thanksgiving!

The month of November is a time when we all take stock of the things we have to be thankful for — by the time we reach the Thanksgiving holiday many of us are planning our “What am I thankful for…” speeches for around the dinner table. I hope your lists are long and wonderful.

My family would love to include that Del has received a kidney.

Del has been living with only one kidney since 1968 (yes, you only need one kidney!), but several years ago he was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).  Del now has End Stage Kidney Disease and desperately needs a life-saving donor kidney, blood type O.
