I have known this man for 36 1/2 years now. He kind of chose to hide his cancer problems from me until the other day. I am going to see if I am a match for a kidney transplant for him. He has no idea I am doing this. I am dying and if he can live a better life with a part of me inside him then he will live longer. If I am not then someone else will because I am on the donor list. Besides I can still live the rest of my days with only one. My heart is in good shape but my lungs are not and that is what is killing me. I have informed my Doctor and Wife that if I flat line not to bring me back. My family could not afford the medical costs involved in keeping me alive. I have been getting head aches every day now so I know that my brain is beginning to starve for oxygen along with my eyes. Here is some advise for anyone going through a bad illness. Read this: (http://www.phassociation.org/NewlyDiagnosed/Coping). I knew all this before because I was told one time I only had 10 years to live without an operation, that was back in the 80's. He was a friend to my family back then and if I can help him now I will. If not sorry the rest will have to wait another year or 2.
