Close Friends Bond Over a Kidney Transplant
A successful transplant and plenty to celebrate
Diana and Donna say they felt connected from the day they met, like they’d known each other forever. After Diana’s successful kidney transplant, they have a bond that’s even deeper. “My kidney function was 3% the day before the surgery and now it's about 78%,” Diana explains. “Donna is my family, she’s like my sister—she gave me my life back. Now I can live free of a machine and see my 10 year old grow up.” The two ladies plan to celebrate their “kidney-versary” together every year from now on.
