I saw a repot on this the other night ! I think, the final offer was 5 million?
Anyway .... then they went to India. To a very poor section and interviewed many people that had sold their kidney. They did thi sto get out of debt. The other alternative was suicide since not getting out of debt was a very shameful thing..:( Problem is they would only get about 800 dollars .........:(

What a strange bid story. Yet I understand why so many would bid on a healthy kidney. My cancerous kidney was removed a year ago. If the other one becomes unhealthy, I might then actually begin to consider 'radical' alternatives to the pedantic waiting lists for those in need of organ transplants.

Would I actually bid? Probably not. But I can empathize with those desperately needing a kidney replacement in order to survive. I may question the means, but not the motive. Life is precious. As 1chamelion would quote from Jonathan Swift, 'May you live all the days of your life.' Each day is a gift, and I hope to open many, many more before I die.

That is a beautiful saying. Thanks for sharing the other side, Gary.
