    Sigrid Fry-Revere talks about The Living Organ Donor Fund

    in Health

    An In-Depth discussion with Sigrid Fry-Revere, founder and CEO of Stop Organ Trafficking Now! This 501c non-profit, non-partisan agency is dedicated to removing barriers to living organ donation by communicating relevant scholarly research to Congress. SOTN! is lobbying Congress, to support living donors by removing financial disincentives that form often insurmountable barriers to Americans who wish to donate organs. Besides huge savings for Medicare, the proposed legislation could close the staggering kidney supply and demand gap, improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of Americans waiting for a kidney, strengthen the penalties for illegal organ trafficking, and help decrease exploitation in developing countries.

    The efforts of Sigrid and her organization will have a great impact it donations of organs for those with kidney failur.

      "I've enjoyed cultural discovery and solving real life problems my whole life. I started traveling with my parents when I was six. Since then, I've been to more than 40 countries and lived in six of them".  

      The Kidney Sellers: A Journey of Discovery brings together all my passions -- medical ethics, learning about a generally misunderstood culture, and working to solve a critical policy issue -- the organ shortage. With this book, I hope to share these passions with you in an entertaining manner and motivate you to think beyond cultural limitations to help save American lives.
