It's August again so that means I'm prepping for my 5th Hood to Coast Relay! This year I get to be part of the Transplant Trotter team again and I'm very excited. The entire team is made up of organ donors, recipients, family and friends. I'm still working on getting Anna to join the team. Maybe next year!
I was very honored yesterday when I was asked to do an interview with THE FOUNDER of Hood to Coast, Bob Foote. Bob is a two-time kidney recipient and is an amazing example of how you can lead a healthy active life post transplant. Here is the interview we did together on KOIN television. It was in front of a live audience so that was a little nerve racking, but still a lot of fun! Enjoy!
Here is the link for the video and story
This year our Transplant Trotter team consists of 4 Living Donors, 7 Kidney recipients, 3 Liver recipients, 3 family members of recipients & 3 friends of recipients ages 14-70. Should be an interesting journey once again this time around!!!
