From around the world
Here's a story from Malaysia about how a 19 year old donor inspired others to come forward and sign up as organ donors. They have a neat time line of events, showing how it all went down with the recovery(or harvest, as they apparently still say in Malaysia). We stopped using the word harvest because I guess it sounded a little harsh for the donor families, like we're going to reap some beans or something. One surgeon I talked to like harvest better because he thought it sounded more natural. Anyhoo, enjoy.
