One donor's story: Billie Annette

  • Bemidji
  • Organ
  • Living Donor: 2009

I am married to a wonderful man and have a beautiful blended family…I am also a proud “Nana” of 6 awesome grandchildren.

I will (hopefully) graduate with my Master’s Degree in the Spring of 2014.  (Shout out to UMD MTAG Program!!)

I am a proud member of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.

My strong faith and family.

My sister and I exchanged gifts – I quit smoking when I became a donor; so she gave me the gift of a smoke-free life….and I gave her a kidney.  🙂
