Connection to donation/transplantation
I was transplanted at the University of Minnesota Hospital in 2001. I received a kidney from my brother and an anonymous donor pancreas. I was lucky to get the two organs with only one surgery.
Competitions/Events at the 2022 Transplant Games of America
Swimming: 50 free, 50 breast, 50 back, and relays.
How many Transplant Games have you attended?
All US Games since 2004 in Minneapolis
Why do you participate in the Transplant Games?
I hope that if people see what can happen to people when they get the gift of life they will think of it and sign up to be a donor.
