Donating Plasma, Even A Kidney? We Take A Look

Tools

By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Many of us have made monetary donations at some point in our life. But what about donating blood, plasma or even organs?

On Monday we'll introduce you to local women who donated plasma for some quick cash and then on Tuesday, a local radio host shares his battle with kidney disease.

Plus, we'll share who came to his rescue that ultimately saved his life.

"Donate your organs. You're not going to be using them when they want them, but if it's a kidney thing or a liver where they can take just part of your organ, you say well I need those, well you can live on one kidney and you give someone else a life," adds James Rabe, local radio host.

The two-part series begins Monday on Idaho's First News at 6 and 10.
