This is interesting. I work in the dialysis field and know of the transplant exchange system, But never stopped to think that this makes sense vs finding 2 donatees that will just be swapped out with each other. I mean, that would just be a longer process/wait time that would not be very practical at all.

Wow! That’s amazing and beautiful to know this happened. I work with dialysis patients and when my patients get a transplant I am so happy for them. I tell them it’s their second birthday. Without dialysis, they wouldn’t be alive. It is their lifeline. It’s amazing that the US government covers this life sustaining treatment. Now, why can’t this be a thing for other chronic diseases?
