DONOR STORIES

“I’ve been blessed with good health. As a doctor I’ve seen so many people suffer on dialysis for years, waiting for a kidney. Sometimes that kidney didn’t come in time. My main motivation is to get one person off the wait list.”

Dr. David Spence

(Tucson, AZ)

“There’s a lot of misconceptions about kidney donation and a lot of fear. But if people take the time to get the facts, they find out the risks are very minimal. People are born with two kidneys. You only need one.”

Michelle Winsor,

 Kidney Transplant Coordinator, Sharp Memorial Hospital

“G-d runs the world, and when presented with a mitzvah, an opportunity to save someone’s life, one should grab it. For it may not come again. To hold back and live in a world of “What if…?” could cost lives. How can I not give away my kidney, just because it’s for someone I don’t know? Somebody knows them. They are someone’s wife, sister, friend and daughter.”

Lori Palatnik,

Kidney donor and noted Aish HaTorah Lecturer, North Bethesda, MD

“I only need one kidney. It would take a mechanic longer to change my alternator than the surgery to take out my kidney. It’s a miracle. I wish I knew a more powerful word than ‘miracle’ or ‘amazing.”

Rita D. (CA)

“Like giving birth and bringing life into the world, giving someone a new chance at life is an unbelievably wonderful feeling”.

Faigy M.

(grandmother from Brooklyn, NY)

“I knew I couldn’t save the thousands of people who are waiting for a kidney, but I could save one. That’s a start.”

Tom F.

“What you get from it is more than the recipient.”

Barbara R.

“It felt really rewarding, I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to donate an organ. It can give a person a chance at a normal life.”

J.W. (Alabama)

“There is no better feeling in the world than being told by the doctor that the kidney kicked in and is functioning properly.”

M.F. (New York)
