    Happy anniversary Kyle and Dawn! I never thought about the fact that a living donor is a double hero…till I read your story.

    Amazing and true that “It not only provides the gift of life to the recipient, but also removes their name from the waiting list, effectively moving everyone else up one notch. That’s why we call living donors ‘double heroes.’ They’re really saving two lives.”

    Dawn, you are one of those selfless heroes.
    Thank you for moving someone waiting – into the place where their life could be saved.
    Awesome story.

    I love to hear the successes!
