Kim Beaukema

Kim is a military mom and a HS Principal who learned about DOVE though a radio ad on her commute home. She had a colleague who had undergone a heart transplant and had thought about kidney donation in the past. Learning that she could help a Veteran get off dialysis and have a better life was special to her - particularly because she grew up in a military home and has children who served. Kim donated in early July 2022 and had an opportunity to meet her recipient Victor - a combat Marine Veteran and father of 4. This connection made Kim's donation that much more powerful and they are now extended family and are planning outreach and education talks in the school system about donation. Go team 19!
