All tagged kidney donor


Becoming a living kidney donor really made me who I am. I got to become me. I felt that I found this path for a reason and looking back, I would never trade the experience for anything. I even went on to advocate for awareness, so others can learn what it is like to be a living donor. So in a way, I continue to donate through others by helping them prepare.


If you put yourself in the path of giving to someone on this level, the love that comes back to you is astonishing. And you get to be a part of a miracle.


Lots of the doctors told me I was a hero. I honestly don't see myself as brave or a hero, and sometimes it made me uncomfortable because I don't know what to say. I am not good at being in the spotlight. I only saw it as helping someone when I could.
