Featured Kidney Donor Story

Jeff

My kidney donation surgery was performed on December 6, 2012 at the New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City. The recipient was my brother-in-law. Today, over two years later, we are both issue free and my brother-in-law’s business has him traveling internationally. At the time of surgery, my age made me the oldest surviving donor to have successfully completed donor surgery during the hospital’s past 50 years of kidney transplant history. I was 72 at the time of my kidney donation.
