One donor's story: Janet Frank
I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. I was all of these at the time I became a donor. I was 59 years old at the time I gave my husband a kidney. My husband and I have a metal sculpture business together. We also will be married fifty years in September.
My family, religion, and friends are what I treasure most in my life.
When my husband needed a kidney I didn’t even think I could be a donor, but one day I thought why not me. I was a registered donor if I died, I was healthy, have two good kidneys and what better person to give one to then the man I love? That was almost twelve years ago. We have been so blessed.
