Shenandoah Junction, WV
His wife, Amy, the living donor, donated on his behalf as they were blood type incompatible and they were listed on the paired kidney exchange program. More commonly called the SWAP, three donors and three recipients were located from different areas of the country and through that miraculous process, he received a kidney before dialysis was required. In the years following, his health and energy has returned and he spends a good deal of time as a volunteer spreading the word about the need for registered donors to reduce the large number of those of the National Waiting list. He’s very grateful!
