Kidney Transplant Chains

A nice story in today's New York Times (here) about how such chains can increase the total number of life-saving transplants each year. Of course, it would be even better if kidneys, which the story notes are uniquely well-suited for transplantation because individuals only need one but when one fails, both tend to fail, could be  sold in a legal (but regulated) market (see, e.g., here and here).

Whether or not you consider becoming a kidney donor, please consider making a gift to the National Kidney Foundation (here).
