Stories of hope

Tim, kidney recipient

Tim with 4 other family members

Tim knows sibling love firsthand. His older brother, Jeff, donated a kidney to him on June 12, 1996 which lasted 11 ½ years. His older sister, Mary, donated a kidney to him on October 21, 2017. “While these are gifts I am unable to ever repay, I live my life every day grateful for their love. Because of their gift, I have remained active and actively employed for 22 years, and along with my wife have raised three wonderful children.”
