I don’t quite understand the medical system here. Could this possibly be true?
My little friend is eight years old. She needs a kidney. I’m thinking that she’s on a list to receive one…makes sense to me…but today I learned that she will not be receiving a kidney. Why? Well, if I understood correctly, Ukraine law requires the kidney to be donated by a family member. And her closest relative is her 13-year-old sister. Too young to donate.
So, now what? Who knows whether kidneys can be donated internationally?
This just doesn’t seem right to me.
