Kidney Recipient and Donor Meet for the First Time - One Year Later
Willie J. Oler, EdD is a Marine Corps Veteran and multi-organ transplant recipient who recently celebrated his one-year kidneyversary by paying a visit to his kidney donor, Lynn Robinson in Colorado Springs, CO. This was actually the first time this pair had met! Will shared the following sentiments, "Lynn is an extraordinarily accomplished, deeply caring, vibrant person. Thanks to her incredible gift I have a new life, and she now shares my journey. In addition, she inspired two of her transplant nurses to become organ donors."
Lynn was motivated to take action by a TV special about the DOVE organization. Her inspiration stirred her to reach out to DOVE as a prospective living donor.
