While interviewing patients for the Pediatric Transplant Center, writer Emily Williams was struck by the long journeys that transplant patients face while waiting for an organ donation match. She decided to do something that no employee had ever done — donate her kidney to a Boston Children’s patient.
Watch how Emily and her donor recipient, Isis Rivera met through an inspiring altruistic living donation.
