One donor's story: Arlene Robbins

  • New York, NY
  • Organ
  • Living Donor: 2010

I’m a technical writer by profession. Spent 11 years in the Army; I’d been an animal rescuer until some health issues forced me to quit. My partner and I have been together almost 30 years.

Hometown: originally New York City. We currently live near Dallas, Texas, but I would never claim this area as a home town.

Saving animals, saving the planet.

My brother asked me. He is my only sibling. I would not have survived long if I couldn’t have helped him.
