"Thanks for asking Marjorie. My stepfather has turned a corner and is improving everyday. He sees his transplant Dr. on Tues. and we hope that he is healthy enough to be relisted for another transplant."
"Stephanie, Thank you for sharing your story. It seems we only hear about the successful transplants and not the other ones. I donated a kidney exactly one year ago to my stepfather and he rejected within 3 months. They used OKT3 to treat it which…"

My niece has been approved for a kidney transplant at Cedar's Sinai in LA but hasn't found an affordable place to stay for the three months following the transplant.
