On the 21st of June 2018, I made a non-directed kidney donation. This is often called an “Altruistic” Donation, a term I have never been comfortable with. I kept this decision very private, until the BBC asked to film my journey for a documentary, which aired in September 2018. Since then, I have spoken about my experience at public events.

I have been asked a lot of questions about my decision to donate a kidney, but three are the most common: -

  1. What on earth made you want to do that?
  2. What do you know about who your kidney went to?
  3. What if they’re a horrible person?

I have my stock answer for the first question, but the other two always catches me off guard. I never think about who received my kidney. I don’t know who they are, and unless they choose to contact me, I never will. Whether they are a good person, or deserving, never really entered my thought process. To be frank, I still don’t care, but it’s an interesting story to tell.
