Not yet. I'm donating the whole thing to KU Med when I die.

No and probably never will. I would have considered it. But a good friend of mines brother just passed away this past week and he was a doner which is a great thing. That was untill the company or persons recieving that precious gift ran his the deceased's mother through the ringer for 4 hours on the phone about the guys complete medical history. Besides, I plan on using my organs up to where they can't be used lol. The only way I would do it is if it was my kids or close family member.

You can live donate a kidney, because most people are born with 2, but only need 1. You can also live donate bone marrow and a piece of your liver (I think). Haven't they had partial liver transplants?
