Amid long waits for organ transplants, some launch their own searches
from Chicago Tribune
Elizabeth Barton's kidneys have failed her. The Hillsboro, Mo., mother has end-stage renal disease, and in order to survive she's on dialysis 18 hours a day. Fluid pumped into her veins through a tube in her stomach cleans her blood as a kidney should. Barton, 38, is among the roughly 1,000 St. Louis-area residents who are waiting for a kidney transplant, a wait that can last years.
