Quoting You and me + 3:" Theres a childs list and an adults list. A child cannot get on an adults list before the age of 12 bc ... [snip!] ... they gave this 10 year old an adult lung when someone else was waiting before her and is 11 and needs it just as bad as she."

The media coverage is probably a big part of it but if they changed the policy then the 11 year old could have gotten the adult lung if needed if s/he was sicker than the 10 year old. That's why I think it should be changed.

I still stand behind my belief that the sickest person that has the best chance should get the organ first.

They have the rules for a reason.

Waiting for my sisters liver was agonizing and to me she was no less important than someone younger...

I think instead of all this hoopla they should be trying to raise support for more people being organ donors.
