How to be a Hero!

Meet Patty. She was my Patient Care Technician, sometimes called a Nurse’s Assistant, during my liver donation surgery here at Keck Hospital of USC.

When Patty told me her story, I called her a hero. That’s because by doing everything she can to avoid needing a kidney, she’s allowing someone else to get the kidney she would need if she wasn’t doing what she’s doing.

Not quite a living donor, but very similar results.
