Recipient  Quotes

Henry (Rico) Barnathan

“I thank Hashem and Renewal and my donor. It’s amazing to find people who will donate a kidney to save a life. I have a new lease on life, I’ve gotten my energy back, I feel young again, and I’m getting married.”


Being engaged, being present in life, being appreciative of the moments, is ultimately what counts. That's a measure of who you are in the end. Renewal is an organization that has touched the lives of thousands of people, not only donors and recipients but their family and friends as well.

“I am so thankful (to Renewal) for finding a perfect match for me so that I can live a more fulfilling life, not having to be connected to a machine 3 times a week. And I am so grateful to them and all of their hard work in finding me a donor. I hope that others do the same and get tested to become a living donor, because it’s the  best gift anyone can give.”
