Life Support: New Kidney Donor Web Site

Comments

You name it. It's available online. Even an organ donor. Just ask Anthony Cottman,45, of Brooklyn, New York. He will soon meet the woman who agreed to give him her kidney, according to The New York Daily News. Cottman undergoes a three-day a week dialysis for four hours each time because of his anemia diagnosis. Nancy Murrell, 47, of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, matched up with recipient Cottman through a new kidney matchmaking Web site, KidneyDonor-KidneyMatchmaker.com. Since then, they have exchanged everything from texts, phone calls, e-mails, except for a face to face encounter, which will take place just before the operation on June 25th. Their inspiring story is scheduled to air on the documentary series "My Last 24" on the Oprah Winfrey Network next year. --Shavon S. Greene
