Transplants and True Friendship.

Updated: Nov 7, 2023

In October of this year, I had the privilege of donating my kidney to a dear friend, Carter Freeman. Our friendship spans back to 1980, having played hockey together in college. For my friend, this was Carter's third kidney transplant, as he had received donations in the past from his mother and brother. Witnessing first-hand my friend's immediate, marked improvement in health and spirit has been an incredible, indescribable gift for me.

My donation helped me realize how precious a healthy life is and how it is to maintain a good mental health balance and perspective. And I’m not the only living donor in the family! My sister donated her kidney to our mother years ago, and that was able to help our mom live a lot longer and more fulfilling life.
