Liver Donor Paul Hawkes Death Goes Public

Some of you will have a tingle of recognition when you read this story because of Lorraine’s comments on this blog. What happened to her and her family is far more tragic than this CNN article can begin to communicate, and it’s unfortunate too many of the commenters are such ignorant, judgmental and inhuman buttheads.

Keep in mind as you read this article that: A. 40% of prospective liver donors have complications, a nugget of info usually not dispensed during evaluation, and B. Tim, the recipient, wasn’t the best candidate for liver a transplant, but wasn’t really given that option.
