Squid Game Organ Donation Portrayal

Transplant Patient
October 19, 2021 in Donor

Does anybody watch Squid Game? I haven't joined the craze but I've heard lots about it - specifically the most frequent headline making the news featuring Squid Game's portrayal of organ donation.

Hollywood seems to love portraying organ transplantation as this sci-fi horror mash up, and it is rarely accurate. Unfortunately a lot of people believe what they see on TV and it provides a negative portrayal of what organ donation and transplantation is actually like.

What are your thoughts on how Hollywood, and Squid game, portrays organ transplants and how can we begin influencing that conversation, making the lived experiences of transplant patients and donors the main narrative in media rather than this false picture that is being portrayed

    I did watch Squid Games. I always get so annoyed with how Hollywood portrays Organ donation and transplants. It’s always inaccurate and unrealistic.
