Donate Life Float: 2016 Float Rider - Dan Stafford

Donate Life Float

One of Dan’s many passions is being in the ocean and surfing In November of 2003, it looked like he would never be able to surf again when he was admitted to the hospital for kidney failure. He was diagnosed with IgA nephropathy which left both of his kidneys in bad condition. A close friend and 2016 float rider, Tiana Watson, stepped up to donate him her kidney and on August 3, 2004 the procedure was completed. Almost immediately, the new kidney began doing the work that Dan’s body had been missing for so long. Today, Tina and Dan have begun families and Dan has continued his passion for surfing.
