Kidney Transplant Chain Sets Record

This gives me such hope and don't know why we have not gotten together like this before....

There are 90,000 people in the United States waiting for a kidney and all it takes is one stranger to begin a chain of events that has the potential to save an ever-growing number of lives.

Rick Ruzzamenti was the first link in the longest such chain so far -- known in this case as chain No. 124, as The New York Times first reported, a stranger who began a domino effect of generosity spanning across the country.

My dad had a kidney transplant about 12 years ago, how long do kidneys normal last in ones body? I don't want to ask him, i feel bad.

He hasn't had any serious problems since the transplant.
