We Are the Champions

A quick medical update:  earlier this month, Nicky and I attended the last of six monthly meetings of a Johns Hopkins-sponsored group called Live Donor Champions.  The members were all people who were on the wait list to receive a kidney transplant and/or were expecting to begin dialysis soon.  The goal was to learn strategies for seeking potential live kidney donors and informing them about the process, risks, and rewards of live donation. 

I'm happy to report that several of the people shown in the picture above have just recently received new kidneys (albeit from deceased, rather than live, donors).  I'll be sure to update you about my own progress.
