ON AUGUST 9, 2017, AT 70 YEARS OF AGE, I RECEIVED A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE. THAT IS WHEN I UNDERWENT A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT AT UCLA. MY SON BRIAN WAS THE DONOR.
I am grateful to so many people. Everyone at UCLA who was involved in our care — before, during and after the surgery. I am also grateful for the Lord's blessing throughout this whole experience. Most of all, I believe I would not be alive today if it were not for Brian and his unselfish love for his Dad. To paraphrase a scripture: No greater love could Brian have than to give of his kidney for me. Thank you from a deeply grateful man.
