  5. As a former kidney transplant recipient, and currently listed and waiting for number two, I sincerely hope that this technology is perfected in a safe, effective, and affordable way as soon as possible.  I dream of a not too distant future where people do not have to live on dialysis as I have for the past three and a half years, waiting for the right people to die to move me up on a list until it is my turn to benefit from the untimely death of a generous soul who had the compassion and foresight to agree to organ donation upon his or her demise.  But until this technology becomes available, please be an organ donor; you have no idea how many lives you could improve and save just by checking a little box when you go to get your driver’s license renewed.  Thank you.
