One donor's story: Karen Wiley
I am the proud mother of six wonderful children and grandmother of twelve beautiful grandchildren. I teach sixth grade math at a local intermediate school. I am involved in adult education at my local parish, St. Philip Neri Catholic Church.
Faith and family are very important to me. That is why I was eager to help Dave by donating a kidney. From the time I learned that he needed one, I was convinced that I could give him one. And all through the process, I prayed that I would qualify to donate.
My brother-in-law has polycystic kidney disease and he needed a donor. I am not a blood relative, but I was a match. The rest is history.
