Donor match - Win the lottery?

Billionaire Owner of the Ottawa Senators public plee for a Liver doner



Ottawa Senators seek live liver donor for owner Eugene Melnyk

Guy is a billionaire obviously on his last leg publically pleeing for a donor.

Phone the hot line, be a match, get virtually any amount in return?

Depending on how desperate the guy is, any match could virtually ask for any amount of money in return and i don't feel it would be out of place, or a scumball move to do so. Giving up numerous years, if not substantially shortening your own life to prolong his?

form to fill out if you are a donor:

Officially you can't pay for organs in Canada.

Unofficially?

I know the rich can pay for their own private healthcare.

But with enough money...does it allow them to jump queue for organ transplant?

We share the same last name, maybe we share livers. On a serious note, family or friends I'd do it without a question but random strangers would be a tough decision me.

I would give up my liver to save a family member or a friend without hesitation, not someone who has a shitload of money. The world is not fair. The wealthy drive the safest cars, get whatever the hell they want and whenever. If they get cancer, they get the best doctors and treatment, while the rest of us suffer. I would destroy my liver before donating it to some rich dude.

He'll get what he needs/wants in the end anyway.

I thought you only give a portion of your liver, and your own liver will regenerate to full size again?

Obviously there are big risks with any surgery, but it's not like donating a kidney.

You're right that you donate part of your liver and it does regenerate (fun fact: liver is the only organ that can do this). However, it would be naive to think that this won't shorten your lifespan.

The risks for the surgery itself is actually very low. Something like less than 1% chance of death where the vast majority of people heal without issue in 2-3 months.

I'm sure if you give some of your liver he would swing some money your way...a little bit of under the table action. I dont think people would give a piece of their own liver without any compensations....

well thats what i'm saying, if you were a direct match you could essentially demand anything you wanted. The guy is a billionaire, 20, 30, even 50 million wouldnt be out of the realm of possibility. And it would hardly be irrational or immoral to ask any amount you desired. You have less than zero obligation to help somone in his position

dont want to give me 50 million? then i guess you dont need a peice of my liver

I believe most people up until their early 50s can regenerate their liver, but the actual regeneration and healing process takes a looooooong time. You won't be feeling the same until you're fully healed. The surgery itself is like 6-8 hours long.

"Hey you want a piece of my liver? I'm a perfect match give me 50 mill...NO?!! Ok I guess you dead...."

I can see alot of these scenarios happening for him sadly this is the world we live in but hey if the guy is a billionaire and wants to live I assume any amount of money will due if it keeps him alive..

In Canada you get placed on your province's waiting list based on your condition.

I personally don't see what the problem is if he's reaching to outside of the regular organ donor system.

Without a proper incentive, there wouldn't be those organ donors anyhow. So, if he's up to pay for it, why not?

He's definitely desperate. And it is going to happen regardless. After all, the amount of money he commands can literally buy pretty much anything on black market.

Is this guy asking because he's desperate, or because he doesn't want to wait?
