Donate Life Float: 2016 Float Walker - Lorena Rodriguez

Donate Life Float


Lorena Rodriguez loves Elvis, margaritas and, most of all, sharing the story of her journey to becoming a living kidney donor. After nearly two decades of working with patients in kidney failure, Lorena decided she could do more and became determined to get someone off of dialysis and back to life. But, it wasn’t an easy road. Lorena first had to get her own health in order and, after a new exercise and diet regime, she lost 20 pounds! In February 2011, nine months after she began her journey, Lorena was cleared for surgery and learned her kidney donation would be part of a chain in which three people would get life-saving kidney transplants. “If I could go back and do it all over again, I wouldn’t change one single thing because I had such a wonderful journey.”
