Ana G Kidney Donor Hero

"I believe people have to try to help somebody else."

Staff members at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) New Brunswick pay tribute to kidney donor Ana Gomez as she is wheeled into surgery prior to give "the gift of life" to her son.

Living kidney donation is so important because the recipient gets a very high quality kidney and bypasses the five to six years that it might take to get a deceased donor kidney in New Jersey.

Support for our living kidney transplant program helps provide lifesaving care for our patients and for their donors, who are truly giving the gift of life.
