it really does its heart breaking to hear. Most donors dont come until its almost the end. 

Not only do you have the problem of finding a willing donor, it's got to be a match. I don't know how close the transplant kidney has to be these days to his blood type and physiology, but that used to be another huge impediment.

True Story: As a kid barely over 18 I was working at a Redskins store in Maryland (Don't Ask..I needed a job lol). We got paid peanuts (As do most retail workers) but we had all just gotten a slight raise January of 2009 for the new year. The Redskins signed Albert Haynesworth late February and within a week after all hourly employees were dropped down to BELOW what we were before we had gotten the raise about a month prior. About half the employees at the 2 stores I worked at put in their 2 week notices.

The same thing happened to me way way back in the early 80s.  I was assistant manager at a fast food joint, and the company decided to dump 18 million bucks into sponsoring a big name NASCAR team.  Right afterward we were informed that no hourly workers would be seeing any increases for the next two years, as a direct result of the racecar investment.  

But that's business.  That's how it goes.  No one held a gun to my head making me work there. 

So I changed jobs.  I mean...I wasn't about to make a career out of salting French fries and taking OJ inventories the rest of my life lol.

Are you serious? If I remember correctly that contract was first (or second) of a few that were cap killers
