One donor's story: Michael Deneen
I think of myself as just a regular guy. I enjoy the outdoors, fishing, camping and nature.
Family, Family, Family!!!
My father, John Deneen, was sick with diabetes and his kidney was failing. After almost 2 years of Dialysis it was brought to my attention that I could possibley be able to donate a kidney to my dad. I jumped at the opportunity. The procedure went off without a htich. Dad felt GREAT for several months, but the damage to the rest of his body was more than he could take. I wish I had known sooner about the donation process. It possibly would have given my dad and the rest of our family more time together.
Rest in peace Dad.
