Houston man gets liver after billboard ad

Todd Krampitz of Houston, Texas, recently underwent successful transplant surgery after renting billboards to plead for the donation of a liver. He received a liver from a person from another state who had recently died. The deceased person's family, who had read about the advertising campaign, donated their loved one's liver specifically to Mr. Krampitz.

This is an example of directed donation as practiced by LifeSharers. It proves that the LifeSharers form of directed donation is legal.
