Featured Kidney Donor Story

Jen

Hi. My name is Jen and I donated my left kidney to a stranger November 26, 2013. To make a long story short, my brother took his life in September 2012. We were just 1 ½ years apart in age and he was my best friend. He left behind three beautiful little boys. Four months after my brother passed, I found myself deeply depressed and struggling in the grief process. I happened to read a story in our local paper of a single mother of three sons who needed a kidney. I too, am a single mother of sons and felt an immediate connection and an instant reaction to donate.
