On Blue and Green Day (and most days) I proudly wear my colors. As a non-directed living kidney donor, my insatiable enthusiasm for spreading awareness makes me a DonateLife lifelong ambassador.

My Story

Donating my kidney to a stranger has been the most empowering act of love in my lifetime. I turned 65 in May of 2023 and a few days later flew from NC to FL to donate my kidney to a young husband and father who had a 1% chance of finding a match. I was his 1%! I met him in the hospital post surgery and we are now “family.” I am forever changed. You can frequently find me running a 5K, hiking, or traveling in my DonateLife gear, spreading awareness everywhere I go. 💚
