How Joann Is Rocking 1 Kidney

1960127_10152639508482222_105937054_n[1]JOANMy name is Joann and I am 59 years old and I donated my kidney to my son on Feb.15, 2017. Our surgery took place at St. Joseph’s in Hamilton, Ontario by Dr. Anil Kapoor. The surgery was a success!!!! My son’s dialysis machine was moved out of the house and he got his life back!!!!!

My son just celebrated his 27th birthday and what a celebration with lots of family it was!!! I am back to working many hours as a server in two busy restaurants, and also exercise at the gym daily. I feel so blessed that I was a match to help my son. Every day is a gift and I thank God every day for blessing us. P.S. I don’t feel any different with one kidney…if I had an extra one, I would do it again…no problem.
