March 2023 Living Donor Anniversaries!
« on: March 02, 2023, 02:51:59 PM »
It’s World Kidney Day on March 9th, 2023, as it’s the second Thursday in March. Happy World Kidney Day, all!

As always, we are about hope for the best here, yet fully aware of how tragedy is woven tightly to our hopes. Parents, children, spouses, cousins, strangers, so many lives changed in so many ways remembered here. Rosemarie and her sister may well be celebrating 46 years of a bond still not well understood or named, different in degree and kind to their sisterhood. Ronald and Barbara have known joy and grief, and may still. Marva did her best and still mourns a stranger. Sunil no doubt mourns his brother.

Best wishes, all, we hope and act to fulfill as best we can. Take good care.
