Does this have any long-term impact your health insurance? I'd be concerned (as an American) subjecting myself to a voluntary procedure that could put my health - and by extension, finances - in jeopardy down the road.

Discriminating, no. But any future medical issues relating to your kidney donation would still cost money and, depending on the severity of the issue, could be substantial. Does that concern you? That's been the one thing holding me back from exploring donation myself.

I'm glad your dad has found a kidney! But so sorry for all the hell your family has gone through. Thank you for sharing. My dad recently passed away, due in part to complications with high blood pressure and diabetes. His side of the family has a long history of these issues, so as much as I'd like to help someone in this way, I'm really nervous to take that step.
