Back in May of this year, Amanda Gedraitis reached out to us on MySpace to submit her entry to be featured as part of our Illinois Donor Diaries. Like many of our entries, we were taken aback at the amazing job Amanda had done in writing such a compelling, powerful piece.
A few weeks ago, we set out to put stories like Amanda’s on film to feature during October and November as part of the 2008 Campus Challenge. Currently a student at Illinois State University, Amanda felt compelled to act on the lack of registered donors nationwide by becoming the youngest recorded non-direct living kidney donor.
