    My wife had signed up to be an organ donor. When she died from lung cancer I didn't think they would want any of her organs because of the chemo and radiation. I got a call from the Mass. Organ Bank that morning asking for permission to harvest her corneas. There are two women, one in Maine and one in NH who regained their sight because of my wife. The organ bank was incredibly supportive after the fact.

    Living donor partnerships are also a terrific, benevolent opportunity for consideration. Relatively new that increases success rates through optimum matching of donors to recipients.

    This! Some people are afraid that they will be allowed to die to harvest their organs (unlikely as the people who make the decision do not make the decision about the organs) and some people decline for religious reasons. Most people just don't think of it. Here's hoping someone in here does that hasn't before

    The young lady and her loved ones could undoubtedly use some prayers.

    This live stream is just heartbreaking. Unbelievable devastation, and all those kids apparently died under the school. Prayers for all affected for peace, unbelievably tragic.

    Moore, OK. Fairly close to where I was at this time last year...

    All children at Briarwood Elementary (which received a direct hit) have been accounted for.

Needing a few prayers.

    She got her follow up appointment done and she cut her insulin number from 26 to 15 and we found her progesterone was down to less than .20. She's down 30 pounds and I passed my "plumbing" tests. The doctor has given us the go-ahead to start trying again. My wife and I are really excited about this. Let's hope this works.
    Awesome!
