Meet Jolinda: Grateful Living Donor Recipient

By Mayo Clinic Transplant Staff, @mayoclinictransplantstaff

Jolinda was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease when she was 12-years-old. The disease caused her kidneys to grow large, noncancerous cysts causing pain, discomfort and difficulty moving.

Several family members and friends were tested with the hope of becoming her living donor. Unfortunately, none were a match. Then, Jolinda found herself in a business meeting that changed her life.

Watch a short video of Jolinda sharing her story.
