One donor's story: Jeff Marian

  • Burnsville
  • Organ
  • Living Donor: 2013

I’m a husband, father, son, brother and friend. I love to cycle and read. And I’m a serious beer snob.

Family, friends and faith are at the heart of what’s important to me. Serving in simple ways to make the world a better place is what drives me.

A friend has chronic kidney disease. She needed a kidney and I had one to spare. Got into the paired exchange program and now get to celebrate being a part of two people’s lives. Being a donor is one of the best and most significant things I’ve ever experienced. The care I received at HCMC from start to finish was just awesome.
