DAN HOWELL: ‘Take My Kidney…Please’
Being in the position to give life to another is pretty powerful. The question is, if you could – would you? Would you become a living kidney donor. There are some people who would not think twice, and one of those is Dan Howell, who became the 18th living kidney donor at University of Minnesota in 2018. But even Dan, the altruistic, eternal optimist who has Captain Underpants as his personal role model, had a moment of self-doubt despite being raised to believe “if you are ever in a position and privileged enough to help someone, regardless of what sacrifices you need to make, you need to do it. Because that is why you are here”.
