Thanks to Beef for the tip on this story of a teenager’s genoristy, a guarantee to be used in a talk in the next few months:
A teenage girl who recently discovered she has four kidneys is hoping to be able to donate two of them to patients desperately in need of a transplant.
Laura Moon … is one of a tiny number of people to have four of the organs growing naturally.
Laura … heard about three-year-old Luke Heppenstall, who urgently needs a new kidney. It occurred to her that if she had four kidneys and did not need all of them, she might be able to donate two to someone who did.
‘I’m not exactly sure how [organ] donations work, but I do know that I have four kidneys and that I would like to help someone like Luke if possible,’ she said.
