Herman "Butch" Borgerding

Gift of Life Michigan

POR FAVOR, soy un sobreviviente de insuficiencia renal politeísta desde hace mucho tiempo.

Perdí a mi madre en 1969, a mi hermana en 1995 y mi sobrino recibió un riñón de una hermana. En cuanto a mí… mi padre donó un riñón en 1985 que me salvó la vida, pero solo duró dos años. Tuve un trasplante de riñón en 1990 y funcionó durante 12 años. Tuve otro trasplante en 2008, pero falló. Recibí mi cuarto trasplante el 28 de septiembre de 2009. Hay miles de personas excelentes que necesitan su ayuda. Por favor, ¿no consideraría dar el regalo de la vida?
