Can anyone come up with one good reason why you wouldn't want to be?
So, if they have all the white people they need, why would a white person need to sign up? Do I understand that right?
Also, say you get called and told that you're needed. What's the process - do you know? Do you fly to wherever the person needing the transplant lives? Are you out for awhile? I vaguely remember someone telling me the process was pretty nasty.
I'd be willing to do it, I think. It would be incredible to know that you helped someone live - even if it wasn't altogether pleasant. But I am as white as white can be.
