The article has a quick, dead-simple explanation for how organ transplant waiting lists work.

My favorite line though:

According to the most recent estimates, the cost of a liver transplant is $519,600

Check it out. I'm a half-million dollar Camel :P

The second half of that sentence (one-third of Americans can't afford one because of no or insufficient insurance) sort of ruins that, but still... i'm worth a lot of money :P

Perhaps you could take a loan out and use it as collateral. Though I wouldn't recommend defaulting on it as the repossession process could be nasty.
