Kidney Transplant: A Story of Life

Sometimes "Thank you" doesn't seem like enough. For the recipients of kidney donations made as part of the longest single center kidneytransplant chain currently in the United States, the selfless giving acts are life-saving and life-changing.

"This person doesn't know me, this person doesn't know my family, yet he gives the biggest sacrifice - an organ - to a person that he doesn't know. It really changed my life, dramatically," says kidney recipient Troy Dorch.

Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center recently held a celebration for the donors and recipients, their loved ones and the clinicians and supporters who have come together to save lives. "THANK YOU!" for entrusting us with your care, for sharing your amazing journeys and for the resonating impact that you have made.
