In Dec of 2015 my husband and I found out he needed a kidney transplant, he started to receive dialysis three times a week. Our only son immediately said he wanted to test to see if he was a match for his father. We just found out in November that he is a match. It took eleven long months to get to this point, but all the test have finally been done. And we have a surgery date Jan 13, 2017. We live in Dallas, TX and our son lives in Madera, CA, so as you can imagine this has been a little bit of a struggle to get this done. Through out this experience I believe we have all learned how important it is to become a living donor, as well as being a donor recipient.
