One donor's story: Dennis Koob

  • Princeton
  • Organ
  • Living Donor: 2001

I am single and a retired math teacher from the Princeton School District, enjoying the “golden” years.  I enjoy volunteer work, reading, lawn and garden work and going to the Fitness Center.

Most important to me are my faith, family and friends.

My older brother, David, was having kidney failure and needed a kidney.  I volunteered to be tested, and he and I were a compatible match.  On April 24, 2001 we had a successful kidney transplant surgery.  David passed away in 2009, but his death was not from kidney failure.
