Amy Donohue, Living Donor
Share Amy Donohue's story with others:
I never thought, two years ago, that my life would become one completely surrounded by everything kidney-related...
In January 2011, I saw a tweet from Kirti about her mom finally agreeing to be put on the list to receive a kidney transplant. I saw that tweet & responded. Kirti had always called her mom “TinyMom,” and I tested for a few weeks before I got to meet her. Through the testing and fundraising efforts, we came up with a name for the kidney I was donating, and TinyFabKidney was born.
I never thought, two years ago, that my life would become one completely surrounded by everything kidney-related! I decided last year to make a documentary about it. In May 2013, I will be driving cross-country, and into Canada, to interview other donors who I have connected with via Social Media. It’s called “Social Media Stole My Kidney!” and the support has been astounding!
I can’t wait for people to see this film and learn more about live organ donation!
