In April of 2009, I joined with supportive friends in San Francisco to donate my left kidney to our good friend Gayle. Gayle had been living with Polycystic Kidney Disease. She needed a healthy kidney and according to the tests – I was a great match. It was a successful surgery and now each year in April we celebrate with supportive, loving friends who helped us through the surgery and following.
Gayle is healthy and will be retiring from the University this year. She has plans to hit the road and travel. I couldn’t be happier nor healthier.
Here are photos from our 3rd year anniversary celebration – the most amazing people in the whole world! And a ‘retro’ photo from that day in April 2009.
