Is there an age limit where people are no longer eligible for transplants? Or is it all based on money and fame and political acumen?
I had an aunt in her sixties who needed a lung transplant (didn’t smoke) & couldn’t get one because she was “too old”. Needless to say, she died.
I assume that is a rhetorical question.
Of course being famous, rich or well-connected has it's advantages. Always has and always will. It's neither right or wrong but just the way of the world.
If you are just a 71-year-old regular Joe living on social security checks, you can forget about a liver transplant. So just cut back on the whiskey sours and blow the leftover money at the race track or the casino.
