Quote of the Day - Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. Such is the salutation to the dawn. - Sanskrit proverb

I'd Like A New Brain, Please

Well, maybe not, but perhaps some people do.  Certainly people, lots of people, wish for new hearts, eyes, lungs, kidneys, livers and life-giving organs they need to live.  MIPTC is an organ donor, so if something happens to me, I hope parts of me live on through others.

Here in the US, we have lists for those waiting for organ donors.  Elsewhere, you can buy body parts.  Many ask why that isn't the case here.

It's not only a question to ask about organs, but what about experimental drugs for people that are dying?  What if a drug, not yet approved by the USFDA, might save your life?

The Abigail Alliance, a father's tribute to his daughter's death from cancer despite her suit against the USFDA to gain access to an experimental, but not yet approved drug, asks these questions, and more.  The site is worth a visit and more worth your careful thought and deliberation.

Certainly worth talking to your representatives about.
