    Wanted to share a quick anecdote:

    A colleague shared that she saw a patient in clinic the other day who lives abroad and flies in regularly for care of her kidney transplant.

    My colleague asked whether the patient received the kidney from a family member or how she received kidney at all being that she doesn’t live here(wait list for kidney in NYS is around 8 years if a person doesn’t have residence in NYS cant get on list).

    the patient replied, that she needed a kidney so she reached out to members of her community and someone gave her a kidney.

    As my colleague put it “Most people have trouble finding a family member to give a kidney (hence the long wait list) and here someone gave to a complete stranger from abroad just because they belonged to the same community, what a special group you belong to”

    The story isnt shocking per se but hearing it especially from an outsider (muslim but that doesn’t really matter) who acknowledged what a special people we are. Gave me chizuk and I hope will to you as well
