When Robert’s wife, Shannon, decided that she would donate her kidney to her brother, Robert was in full support. Shannon’s brother, Scott, suffered from IgA Nephropathy and was in end-stage renal failure. Neither Shannon nor Robert expected that the preliminary tests for donation would turn up that Shannon had kidney disease. With Shannon unable to go through with the surgery, Robert stepped up to donate his kidney for Scott. Robert went into surgery with a brave outlook saying, “see ya on the other side”, to his brother in law. Recovery for Robert and Scott was easier as they had requested rooms next to each other, took their first steps together, and were released together. Just two years post-transplant, both are as strong and healthy as ever.
