It's hard to imagine a more nerve-wracking and exhausting feeling than waiting for a life-saving organ transplant, but that wait is a pretty common experience. After all, there are only so many donors out there, and even fewer that will necessarily serve as a match to us.
If that wasn't bad enough, it's also true that we'll never be able to predict who will need a transplant as they can happen as the result of a serious and sudden infection. And even taking that possibility aside, we can't exactly predict or control who's going to be born with a rare condition.
As we'll soon see, this reality can create unfortunate situations in which children fight for their lives before they've even had a chance to experience it. But thanks to some quick and diligent intervention, the day will likely come when one child won't even remember what that felt like.
