Are you a genetic chimera? You may be and not know it. Different parts of your body may have different genetic makeups, because you are the result of the fusion of two fraternal twin embryos. This could make finding a matching organ donor somewhat difficult. But that may be when they discover the condition. Of course, your body hasn't rejected the parts of it that are genetically dissimilar, so maybe your body would be better at accepting new organs.
