UC Davis Donor Reunion in the news

UCD 2010

Today I met my donor, she is a beautiful woman in and out that I will forever be connected to. This amazing reunion had huge press coverage since it was the first donor swap that UC Davis has done. All coordinated by Sharon Stencil & the transplant team. My kidney donor’s name is Sandra, she is a mother of 6 and has called me her 7th since she has given me the gift of life. Right away I felt a special connection towards her since for the last month I had to learn to truly accept the gift she was giving me. A sacrifice that will definately touch my life forever. I will write more about this special reunion but here is the news coverage.

  1. I am wiping my tears as I watch the two videos you shared. I am so happy for you all. Watching your videos made my upcoming kidney donation to my father seem more real. Our date for the kidney transplant is right around the corner, June 28th. Wishing you continued good health! Enjoy life! Enjoy your family!


  2. Thank you, Maribel. You also have a very nice family:) It was very nice to meet you. Honestly it was my pleasure to be a part of this chain. Seeing my husband healthy and knowing that tree other people got their life back gives me a very good feeling. I will write you more later . God bless you.
