STEPHANIE AND CHERYL – TRANSPLANT CENTER

Stephanie and Cheryl were a perfect match, in more ways than one. They were brought together by tragedy in 2001 after both had lost a child. Years later, when Stephanie told Cheryl she was diagnosed with a form of kidney disease and needed a transplant, Cheryl replied without hesitation: “OK,” she said, “I’ll sign up.” Stephanie says she is now enjoying a life with more freedom and energy, thanks to Cheryl and the St. John Transplant Center.
