Go, Kaaren, Go! A Big Day for Kidney Transplants

Ira-and-kaaren My friend Kaaren is scheduled for a new kidney today.  Along with a dozen other people in an incredible swap.  See the News & Observer for a great article: Bad Kidney Makes Good Pals.  Please hold Kaaren, John and all in the Light.  And consider a donation to help Kaaren and John with uninsured expenses related to the long recovery time.  We're hoping to raise $7k.  Ping me for details.  Kaaren is pretty much a saint.

Update: to make a tax-deductible contribution, visit www.transplantfund.org and enter Johanson in the patient name box.
