Altruistic Organ Donor Harry Kiernan

Friday, December 17, 2010

At 57 years old, computer consultant Harry Kiernan is one of the few living people to have donated multiple organs. So far he’s donated one kidney, part of his liver, and is currently waiting to become a bone marrow donor. What’s more, Harry has given each of his organs to complete strangers. Harry tells us how being with his wife Denise as she died of chronic progressive multiple sclerosis 12 years ago motivated him to give all that he could to improve the lives anyone he could: even people he didn't know.
