DOVE Transplant Team and Their Paired Exchange Team Celebrate One Year

DOVE kidney recipient, Sid Khan, is a Navy Veteran who was able to return to his job as a Ferry Boat Captain after he recovered from his kidney transplant. Joe Axel, DOVE living kidney donor, connected with Sid through their gaming community; they had never met in person until he underwent the donor evaluation. While Joe could have donated directly to Sid, they both agreed to participate in a paired exchange with an incompatible mother and daughter pair. Joe's generosity impacted two lives!

We hear Joe is traveling a lot and doing very well. Sid stays in close touch with Joe and and will be joining DOVE as we march in the NYC Veterans Parade this November!

Sending much love to Joe and Sid.
