One donor's story: Jeanne Connolly

  • St. Louis Park
  • Organ
  • Living Donor: 2002

I am a wife and mother of 2 sons, and grandmother of 1 granddaughter. I work full time and always have.

Family and friends are so important.

When my friend called and told us her kidneys were failing, both my husband and I told her we wanted to be tested as donors. They ended up choosing me to donate. Seeing what she had to go through I never had any doubt about the surgery. I have never regretted doing this for her.
