Discover why someone would donate a kidney to a total stranger! After an unexpected year-long journey of exploring kidney donation, Ari Sytner became a kidney donor to save the life of a single mother of 3 children. The experience was so inspirational and transformative, that Ari revealed the entire journey in this first ever question and answer book, outlining the 100 questions he struggled with before deciding to proceed with his transplant and give the gift of life. The Kidney Donor's Journey walks you through every stage of Ari's process, from researching, struggling and telling his family, to testing, undergoing surgery and recovery. The book inspires readers to weigh the personal and ethical values of kindness and human life, while sharing a moving and uplifting tale of one man's journey to make a difference in the world. Some questions include: How do I tell my family? How risky is the surgery? Who pays for the surgery? Can I back out if I change my mind? Will my insurance go up? Do I meet the recipient? Will I have to take medications forever? Can I still drink coffee or alcohol? How long will I be in the hospital? Can anyone be a donor? How long will I be in the hospital? Will I regret my decision later on? Plus many more powerful questions and answers!
