Kidney Recipient Profile – Chicago White Sox Announcer Ed Farmer

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to sit down with Chicago White Sox play-by-play radio announcer Ed Farmer to chat about his kidney transplant. Ed used to be a pitcher in the major leagues prior to needing his transplant. Nearing death, Ed’s brother Tom saved Ed’s life by donating a kidney to him.

Check out the video below and you can also listen to a radio PSA Ed pulled together for us over here!

Thanks for sharing with us Ed!
