One donor's story: Thomas Nelson

  • Burnsville
  • Organ
  • Living Donor: 2001

I am 59 and donated a kidney 12 years ago.  I am married with 5 children and 3 grandchildren.  My health is excellent.

Living a complete and full life while making a difference to my family and to others.  I am active in creating and growing businesses and active in my church.  I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.

My wife has a genetic kidney disease that has been part of her family for generations.  I had the privilege to donate a kidney to my wife in 2001, when my wife was 47 and I was 48.
