Hello All, I want to share my success story. Last February I donated my left kidney to a family friend who had a hereditory kidney disease and therefore no one in his family could donate. Our surgeries both went very well and he is happy and healthy today with no more dialysis. My recovery went very well and I have a small battle scar and a warm fuzzy feeling for doing something life changing for someone. Moral of my story is... sign your donor card, give blood or lay down and give a kidney! Life is about the journey not the end result!
