I Am A 27yo German who donated 65% of his liver to former host dad in the U.S. on 7/19/21 - Ask me anything!
As the title says, I'm a 27yo German who came to the United States on 6/25/21 on a National Interest Exception. This NIE was granted to me because my motivation to come here was to be tested if I was a match to donate part of my liver to my former host dad.Turns out I was and our surgery was past Monday 7/19/21.
I'm doing this to raise awareness about the possibility of living organ donation and saving a loved one or even a total stranger.
I will check back here throughout the evening/night and also tomorrow, as I have a lot of time to spare in recovery. Ask me anything :)
