Judith Johnson, of Dexter, said she has had two kidney transplants in 19 years. Before her first transplant, she was tired and struggled to participate in everyday activities.

"I thought that was kind of neat," Johnson said.
Scott Geldmeyer, of Niagara, Wis., visited Rochester for appointments for his kids who were ages 3, 3, 5 and 10 when he got a heart transplant on Sept. 24, 2010.
