Organ donation often is referred to as the gift of life. In the U.S., 100,000 people are waiting for an organ transplant, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing. Unfortunately, many may never get the call saying that a suitable donor organ has been found. It's estimated that every day in the U.S., 20 patients die because of the lack of donor organs. While organ donation is often thought of as something done after death, living donation is possible with some organs including kidney and liver.
On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Mollie Luhman, a living kidney donor, and Dr. Mark Stegall, a surgeon at Mayo Clinic who helped perform the transplant, will share their story. Also on the program, Dr. Michael Zaccariello, a psychologist at Mayo Clinic, will help explain why attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is on the rise. And Dr. Donald Hensrud, a preventive medicine specialist at Mayo Clinic, will discuss nutrition do’s and don’ts.
