Donate Life Float: 2016 Float Walker - Suzanne Conrad

Donate Life Float
When Suzanne needed a job, Tom gave her a chance. Eight years later, when Tom needed a kidney, Suzanne was thrilled to help. Suzanne worked as a nurse following both transplant and donor patients. She had seen how much being on dialysis can affect a patient, and she didn’t want that to happen to Tom’s optimistic and lively stature. Tom was 17 years post liver transplant and 67 years old. He was going into renal failure and had no compatible family donors. With blood type B, Tom would have a long wait ahead of him. Suzanne’s “O” blood type was a great match for Tom. Suzanne stated, she was so impressed with Tom’s pure joy for life and didn’t want to see that fade away. So, she donated her kidney to him.
