Why I donated my kidney to save my brother's life - Comedian D-Don

Popular comedian and OAP Iruvwe Okeremute aka De-Don donated his kidney to his ailing elder brother, Morris Okeremute, who urgently needed a transplant to survive. De Don traveled to India a few weeks back to donate his kidney. He explains why he did it in a new interview
"My brother started having this kidney problem in 2009. My elder sister donated her kidney to him at the time but unfortunately in January 2013 the kidney failed because he didn't take his drugs for some weeks because the drugs he ordered from India arrived late. Se when he needed another kidney it was natural that I donate to him. It wasn't difficult making up my mind because I needed to save his life. I equally had a proper awareness about kidney donation and also the fact that nothing happened to my sister who had donated before. She even had another baby boy after the donation.

Nice one, that's the right thing to do, it would only seem strange if you can't do that to save the life of a sibling.

What a kind and loving family, all you people need to do now is to keep praying so that there won't be any delay in drugs or anything that can make the kidney fail again. God will reward you and your sister De-Don. *ThatFunctionGuy*

Thumbs-up Bro. Very very noble. May God preserve your only kidney and may your brother not need anymore kidney for good.

At the same time it means you may have to be very careful about what you eat and drink so as not to risk the health of your remaining kidney.

Oh this is so sweet of you and upsetting at the same time.Don't get me wrong,i'm happy for you and your brother,you've got a heart of GOLD but wish it was that easy to save my Dad from cancer,you see......i was willing to give my life in place of his but that's not remotely possible,we take things for granted on the daily because we always think it will be there forever but life throws you curveballs and sometimes canon balls that changes things for as long as you live! I'm currently in a dark place,loosing a loved one is the most distressing thing to ever happen to me,maybe i will find happiness some day but right now it's hard to dance with the devil on my back.
