Storyline

Three pairs of complete strangers try to save each other's lives. Six Americans from across the country take part in a high-risk and high-stakes "triple kidney exchange" that could save - or end - the lives of three of them. Three are stuck on dialysis, and on a long waiting list for a kidney. All three have unusual cocktails of antibodies in their bloodstreams, and they will probably die before they can get off the list. But, in a unique donor-matching program at Johns Hopkins Hospital, in Baltimore, they get a chance to receive a life-saving kidney from a live donor. The operation could extend their lives by 15 years or more. But there's a catch: they must supply the donor themselves and that person must be willing to give up their kidney ... to a perfect stranger. Written by Anonymous

Excellent, my brother is on a waiting list. I'd gladly give mine to anyone that was compatible, however the practice of multi donors and receivers isn't nation wide. Hopefully it will be soon , I know very little about transplants and hows and whys of it all,I'd like to see more, and yes not just the positive outcomes but the downside too. My brother is on dialysis four days a week, I understand there are different lengths of treatment, If there were such a program here in California, how would you know? They say my brother is on a waiting list, why haven't they asked about his siblings? Is it the cost? or is it due to his stage of renal failure? Why is the donor exchange of multi donors not nation wide ? Sounds so positive, yet no one seems to address it.
