Kidney exchange story at NEPKE


Market design is full of both frustration and satisfaction. Kidney exchange provides an unusual amount of each. Sometimes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 satisfactions come in unexpected ways. Below is an email I received yesterday, whose author gave me permission to share it here, along with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 photo.

"Dear Dr. Roth,

I want to thank you for your role in establishing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 New England Program for Kidney Exchange. On July 8 my husband Bryan, in a 3-way swap with donor/ recipient pairs at Hopkins, RIH/ Brown and Dartmouth, received his new kidney after years of failing health. He is already feeling remarkably better, and his new kidney is functioning well.

Here is a photo of our 3-year-old, Lincoln, and 3-month-old, Haven, thanking Bryan's brocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r for donating his kidney to a stranger at Hopkins so Bryan could receive one from Dartmouth. I can imagine that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365oretical academic work can lack a human face at times, so I wanted to assure you that your work is truly changing lives. I can't thank you enough for giving my boys cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir Daddy back.

Yours,
Katie Silberman

"hi Dr Roth,
Everyone at RIH was very pleased with your blog.  Here is a little more about Bryan and our family, if you are interested - a website we created to look for a donor.  Now not only is it out of date, but we can take it down!  (we also learned that finding a donor from your community at large is nearly impossible - I really think swaps are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best answer by far, since it is only family members who will follow through with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process.  I can't tell you how many leads we had that fell through along cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way.)


We learned that Bryan's brocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Stephen's kidney went to a 42-yr-old facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r of four in Maryland.  Very gratifying.

best,
Katie"
