Featured Kidney Donor Story

Addie

My name is Addie and I donated my right kidney at age 24 to one of my best friends, Amy, in May 2014. Amy has an autoimmune disease called lupus that attacked and destroyed her kidneys, and she was on dialysis for 3 years. By a miracle of God, we were a near perfect kidney match! Today we are both doing great. I just finished my first post-transplant half marathon (less than 6 months later) and am planning to do a lot more running, hiking, swimming, and traveling this year. I'm staying hydrated and eating well to make sure I continue to feel great and rock one kidney!
