Bonnie was running out of time. Her kidneys had failed, and life on dialysis was no life at all. Fortunately, Bonnie and her husband, Craig, participated in a historic four-way paired kidney exchange – the first one performed in Florida. Made possible by the Miami Transplant Institute’s Paired Kidney Exchange Program – the only initiative of its kind in the region – four people were matched to each donate a kidney to four strangers, all so their loved ones could receive the gift of life.
Watch the video below to hear the amazing story from two of the participants, Bonnie and Craig.
