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.

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.
