Meet Scott: Brothers Bond Over Kidney Disease, Transplant

By Mayo Clinic Transplant Staff, @mayoclinictransplantstaff

Scott was diagnosed with IgA nephropathy 15 years ago. The disease causes inflammation of the kidneys, limiting the organ’s ability to filter waste, excess water and electrolytes from the blood. While Scott didn’t have any major symptoms at first, the disease progressed over time, bringing Scott close to kidney failure.

When Scott’s care team started discussing dialysis and a kidney transplant with him, Scott’s brother David quickly volunteered to be tested as his living kidney donor. The two were a match.

Learn how David’s kidney donation to Scott brought these brothers closer together.

Read Scott’s full story.
