And another thing. What could obtaining the donor's personal information gain from this? If I was the donor's family, I would fight this without stopping. Who's to say that the recipient didn't have cancer that was not detected before he was cleared for transplant? It happens. Immunosuppression will cause any cancer develop quickly. Nothing about transplant is perfect, it's not a cure.
