Facebook Becomes a Novel Mode To Search for Kidney Donors

Facebook has joined the list of ways where one could look for kidney donors. This social networking site has become an important way to seek kidney donors. Some of the other ways which are quite popular in finding a suitable kidney donor are church bulletin, through mouth piece and an advertisement.

The United Network for Organ Sharing’s Spokesperson April Paschke said Facebook is increasingly becoming a way to look for a generous person ready to become organ donor in need. It is one of the benefits of social media where people readily come forward to help others.

One of the kidney recipients, Damon Brown, 38 father of two shared his experience. He said, he faced hell when was put under dialysis. He could not even sit. Many times he thought to quite but he was born fighter he has his kids responsibilities and of his wife.

He finally thought to take the help of social media. He said the only motive for him to join the social networking site was to look for kidney donor. Therefore, he set up page telling his story under the name of 'Damon Kidney'.

Rest of the work was accomplished by his friends and relatives. They forwarded the page and told their known people about Damon’s search. Finally he got a suitable kidney donor. While remembering those difficult moments, Damon said "I'm a strong guy, but I would have to say, it's been rough this year”.

However it seems unique, but it is not the first time that someone has got kidney through social networking site. In 2011, a man in Michigan and a Florida woman also received kidneys through the help of Facebook. So now one has got yet another reason to join Facebook and that is to seek a suitable kidney donor.
