Giving the gift of life — to a total stranger
LISA PRIEST Globe & Mail
Kevin Gosling was sent to three psychiatrists to see whether he had a death wish, was seeking atonement for a past sin or was just plain crazy when he offered to do something no other Canadian had ever done: donate part of his liver to a stranger.
The 46-year-old man’s wish was answered last year when he underwent a six-hour operation at Toronto General Hospital to have two sections of the left part of his liver dissected and transplanted into a child.

I found your picture of a youth fishing the Toronto Islands and was hoping I could use itâ€¦long story short I sit on a committee whose objective is to promote fishing in urban areas (its also my job) and this committee will have a booth at the sportsmen’s show next week. With your permission I’d like to add that photo to a slide presentation showing people fishing around the City. If you have any questions please contact me at the numbers below.
