Kudos to Kendall from Wheaton, a Readers’ Choice Nominee for Glamour‘s Women of the Year award. At 17-years-old, Kendall has already received two liver transplants and was inspired to help other teens while in the hospital. As a result, Kendall started the non-profit Kids Caring 4 Kids, an organization that  raises funds for children and teens living in poverty in Africa.

Rush University Medical Center has named the kidney transplant nurse coordinators as Team of the Year. Members of the team play an invaluable role in the pre- and post-kidney transplant process, insuring a positive transplant experience and providing quality care to all transplant patients. Congrats to this excellent team of nurses!
