Thank you, Erez Ben-Ari, for a very moving column (“Not just for anyone,” July 9) making a very important point about how organ donation saves lives.
Albert Behar and his family are very close friends of mine. I have nothing but admiration and respect for Lea Hanan for bravely donating one of her kidneys to save her father’s life. It was not only a great Father’s Day gift, but shows a daughter’s love and gratitude to him for all he has done for her.
I’m delighted to hear both of them are doing well. Albert has been a very active volunteer at the Seattle Hebrew Academy, where he is affectionately called Uncle Albert. May he be blessed with many more years of good health to continue volunteering at the school where he is much loved.
