On April 15, CarryAnn Misamore, of Mount Juliet, celebrated her one-year kidney transplant anniversary by hiking 14 miles on the Fiery Gizzard Trail to Foster Falls. The “Hike for Life” marks the first time she has attempted to hike the entire 14 miles of the trail since her transplant. After years of battling polycystic kidney disease, CarryAnn received the gift of life when her brother donated a kidney to her, as a living donor.
