Our News Story...

Here is our interview from ABC4 we did today. You get to meet the amazing Pepe; he is so awesome!! I would love to point anyone in the right direction if you are interested in kidney donation. Not only have I helped Pepe out, I got a new blankie from the hospital I can't sleep without, (Yes, I am 30 years old and I have a blankie...) I get a $10,000 tax write off and I lost 12 pounds from the surgery. Why would anyone NOT want to donate?!

You are awesome, both of you. But to answer your question as to why someone would not want to do it...I have this fear that I will give my kidney to a deserving stranger, only to discover years later that one of my children would need it. Then what? I could have saved them, but saved a stranger instead. You are selfless for doing it, truly I admire that.

You are so amazing. My brother in law is waiting for a kidney and my husband will need to have a second kidney transplant next year after having his from his dad for 14 years. What you are doing saves lives, saves mothers, fathers, brothers sisters and children from dieing from something that can be prevented. You should be very proud of what you have done and all the nay sayers should just realize the selfless act that you hav eboth performed. It is because of people like you that I can have a husband here still and my daughter can have a father.
