    Being a donor isn’t safe. You will be worth more money dead then alive to doctors these days. Just don’t trust anyone. You can go to the hospital with the flu, and never come out alive if you are a donor. It’s happened to many “donors” already. Thus I will never be a donor and I encourage everyone not to sign up to have their lives snuffed out of them for their body parts that will be SOLD for big $$$$

    This young man is living because her sons HEART is beating inside of him. I've had a Heart attack, I have inside of me I havd a CRT-D ( Cadiac Resynchronisation Therapy Defibrillator ) . I'm LIVING because of this device . You 131 THUMB DOWNERS have no HEART, unless it's made of stone. I pray that you'll not need a new HEART or CRT-D . Shame on you all.

    what a lovely story!though it was confusing re: the editing.. so, not sure who was saying, "our son." but whether his dad was a guest that day and is the one talking over the footage (like if the parents waited years to get married) or if the stepdad/new husband helped mom raise him, that was an amazing wedding gift for sure! and guessing rules have changed about recipients and donor families being given each other's contact info? or is it now like adoption and sperm and egg donorship - where mutual consent is now an option?

    This is the only part of NBC that I can tolerate. I used to work for an NBC affiliate and used to be very loyal. With so much poor reporting of facts I unsubscribed recently. I'm saddened by the choices of management. Maybe one day I'll give them another chance. Have a great day.

    Just reading the title of this makes me cry. We made the decision to donate my 26 yr old son's heart a few months ago. He was a pedestrian, mowed down by a driver high on fentanyl and morphine. My son had the biggest heart. The kindest, strongest person to all who knew him. He didnt get his chance to accomplish what he was capable of in his physical life, it seemed like the most natural thing, to give someone else that chance. I hope to someday meet his recipient, but right now, my grief is too raw. Someday, i will....
