Did you know kidneys can talk?  Well, OK not all kidneys.  But there is one that I know of.  Who knows, maybe there are more out there.  Last week during Snowpocalypse 2011, I had the pleasure of meeting Emily’s kidney.  I met her on my friend’s blog, Planet Josh.  OK, before you totally think I’m some an internet whack job, let me give you the skinny.

According to Emily’s kidney , it is “just a kidney, looking for my Emily. Join me in my quest to find a viable kidney donor.” Emily’s kidney has a Twitter account, a Facebook account AND a blog.  In the 2 weeks since these were developed, there are 144 Twitter followers, 1598 FB friends, and sadly only 3 blog followers.

Emily is a young lady in need of a kidney transplant.  Her sister & friends had the brilliant idea to use social media to get the word out. So, viola … Emily’s kidney was born!  I, for one, think this is a FABULOUS way to share not only Emily’s story but information about the overall need for organ donors.

Here is a video that tells Emily’s story … Emily’s story

and a newspaper article … Sharing the gift of life

I think it would be awesome if we all joined together to aid Emily’s kidney to find her Emily.  How about you?

What a wonderful story of a family banding together to save their loved one.  I have already followed Emily via Google Friend Connect on her blog, on twitter and Facebook.  I hope you too decide to follow and support this young woman!

Thanks Tammy for sharing this story of courage and hope, I really appreciate it!
