Any double donors out there: liver and kidney?

Thanks for the welcome, Ginger! I had a student many years ago who ultimately needed both a liver & kidney transplant. I was friends with her mom and witnessed the years of struggle that they faced. Happily, she had successful transplants and is now pursuing a career in nursing, currently working at the hospital she was treated at as a child. I know that living organ donation is not for everyone, but I feel so strongly that it is the right thing for me to do, so I strive to be informed and learn as much as I possibly can about making this a reality.

@rebekahinvt I’m impressed with your generosity. You are very selfless. I presume from your moniker that you live in Vermont. Is there a transplant hospital there? I know that Dartmouth Hitchcock on the border does some transplants, not liver, I went to Mass General for my liver transplant.
