American Heart Association. American Liver Foundation. American Lung Association. Think of an organ, and most of the time you can think of a non-profit that lives and breathes for a particular organ. But what about the organs we can live without? There is no American Spleen Foundation because most of the time they cut that thing out and toss it in the incinerator as you move into life without this import, yet inessential immune system pal. So we think it's high time to celebrate the organs you can live without -- the gallbladder, spleen and appendix -- with their own non-profit. We are proud to introduce the Organization for Organs With No Organization (OOWNO) to celebrate those guts that are gone but not forgotten (actually, these is a Gallbladder Cancer organization). Share you story of your lost appendix with us!
Thinking of those we lost on the Day of the Dead, rest in peace, Gallbladder!
