Once the cancer set in doctors couldn’t do much to save him. Everyone assumes that since Walter Payton is a Hall of Famer that he would get moved up the recipients list, but the government offers everyone an equal opportunity. No one is above one another. The government also placed a price ceiling on the amount of money needed to pay for an organ.
Then the travel time from the location of the deceased to the person in need, also gets added. Now if the person is living they can bring them to the hospital, match blood samples, and donor criteria. Once finalized, with both people in the same hospital, they begin the procedure; in this case the kidney stays max 1-2 hours outside the body. This result in the low chances of a viable organ from the dead to reach and save the life of the living.
In 1992, there was a movie called Lorenzo’s Oil, in this movie Lorenzo has ALD and his mother and father discover a mixture of oil to help stop the disease from progressing. It has been proven to work and has been given to boys in different situations and at different stages of this disease. The oil has not been approved by the FDA but was endorsed by a physician at John Hopkins by the name of Dr. Moser. This method of treatment is very costly and is not covered by insurance and is not used very often. Another avenue is by having a bone marrow transplant done.
But if the idea of allowing organ selling seems so outstanding, then why is organ selling almost universally banned? There are several objections to organ selling, but this paper will examine just one: the idea that organ selling exploits the poor and seems to only benefit the wealthy via several
Another counterargument is Religion. There is over 4,200 religions in the world, and each religion 's practices different beliefs. People who are against Presumed Consent would say having freedom to practice your own religion is in the first amendment. However, most main religions promote the idea because it’s a selfless act. “In general there has been broad support for organ donation among most faith communities,” (organdonor.gov).
There is no age limit, but if under the age of eighteen the parents of the donor must give consent to authorize the decision (Mayo Clinic Staff). As different excuses have attempted to be form to reason for not becoming a donor the Mayo Clinic Staff proved that organ donation stands consistent with the beliefs of most major religions (Mayo Clinic Staff). Any person can donate their organs, but not all of the organs would be needed so what is keeping people from donation? Every hospital has different requirements for someone to become an organ donor, 30% of which need to be resubmitted (Unos Staff). Right now 58 organ procurement organizations (OPOs) and 261 transplant centers are in the world, making not much that can keep people from becoming an organ donor (Success Rates of Transplants).
Epling is aware that many patients have never experienced an infectious disease that has lead to millions of deaths, and don 't appreciate the medical preventions that are available today. Epling also makes a point that by getting vaccinated it saves the society as whole, huge amount of money on medical care. He also illustrates the rigorous system that vaccines go through to be approved for mass production. The use of data, and charts are use display the effectiveness, but also the safety of vaccination. This information can be applied to my research to show that vaccination overly tested before given to the
“Each day, an average of 79 people receive organ transplants. However, an average of 21 people die each day waiting for transplants that can 't take place because of the shortage of donated organs” (The Need Is Real). There are many different views of the pros and cons that make up transplants of all kinds, from organ to bone transplants, and whether or not they should be allowed to be continued. There are a few cons of the different types of transplants. One of these negatives is that the donor usually does not get to choose who will receive his organs.
Whether it be a vaccination, a pill, anything. Families are losing family members because of this, and the government is only giving $600 million while they are giving $3-$5.3 billion dollars a year to cancer. I am not trying to rule out any type of disease or anything, but come on government, Alzheimer’s is just as important as cancer. I hope people will stop taking Alzheimer 's for granted, and not paying any mind to other families that are losing family members. I hope scientists will find a cure for both cancer and Alzheimer 's and they will reach their goal!
I asked my Grandmother, when you finally went for your scan and the results came out positive what was your first reaction? She answered in tears and said i immediately fell to the ground in shock, “I suffered through the treatment and ended up in breast conserving surgery were i got my left side breast removed, over a 2 months of healing after being in hospital for 1 week after my surgery, after a couple of months after my surgery i went for my weekly check up and the Doctor then informed me that i had to get a mastectomy done on my right breast because the cancer cells had spread too and also a bit just by armpit , i am now 77 and finally recovered from the removal of both my breast and now i am proud to say i am Cancer free but in saying that i will never again hesitate getting a check up to insure I’m well.
