Extreme Waiting - Organ Donation

Posted by Tatjana Vukic | 3-05-2012 19:16 | Category: Health



Michael Stapf lies pale and weak on a hospital bed, .. next to a him dialysis machine. The young man hopes for seven years for a donor kidney, while the daily hemodialysis is his destiny.

With the action at the station of the airport, the foundation “For life” ( “Fürs Leben”) wants to make attention to a situation that is every day over 12,000 people in Germany exposed. There are so many patients currently on the waiting list for organ donation - a lot over the years, some in vain. (more after the video)

The young patient is explicitly not for a shock effect: “I want to be representative of all who are on the waiting list, make it clear that everyone, regardless of age, has the opportunity with a donor card to give a new life. “said Stapf.

A tragic situation is made public. 

Otherwise behind closed doors nobody sees their struggle for life ... And they are waiting for a second chance. Each day is one day less.

In the exemplary display appears waiting time of 1.13958 million minutes.

The wait for a donor organ.
