Myrtle Beach chamber leader donating a kidney to a stranger in first-of-a-kind NC surgery
By Jay Price
Brad Dean is in perfect health, but just after 7:30 a.m. Monday, Duke University Medical Center surgeon Deepak Vikraman-Sushama will press a scalpel against his abdomen and slice.
That cut will kick off a cascade of four operations on four patients – and perhaps a new era for kidney transplants in North Carolina.
Dean, 43, president of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, is a so-called “altruistic donor.” He offered to give a kidney to an unknown recipient simply because he thinks it’s the right thing to do.

Unrelated directed kidney donor in 2003, 500+ time blood & platelet donor and counting!
