People in need of organ transplantation are turning to Facebook to find donors, charity organizations have revealed.
The Daily Mail reports one such case where 38-year-old Damon Brown recounted his story on a Facebook page called 'Damon Kidney.' The latter was hunting for a kidney donor with blood type O and was helped by friends and family who used social media to highlight his need.
April Paschke, a spokeswoman for the United Network for Organ Sharing, a private non-profit organization, told the newspaper that Damon's case was not unique, "It's an extension of the way we communicate. Before we found the internet, people found other ways: through a church bulletin, word of mouth or an advertisement even," she noted
