Sheila Devaney

DOVE Team #35

Sheila donated her kidney to Navy Veteran Ron after many bumps in the evaluation and scheduling process. Sheila was steadfast in her commitment to donate to Ron - even though they had never met. While Sheila was cleared to donate several months ago, she waited for Ron to be ready medically. This is why they kept their original team #35!

Ron was on dialysis for over five years. He and his family are beyond grateful to Sheila for giving him hope to live a life free of dialysis.

Team 35's transplant took place on April 9, 2024 in New Jersey at RWJ Medical Center.
