Stacy Connects

You Complete Me

April is National Donate Life Month and April 6th is Living Donor Day. To make this topic more personal Stacy invites Maria Bartlow and her daughter Monica Franks to talk about Odin (their son and brother respectively) who needs a kidney, not to be complete, but to survive and thrive. Stacy’s longtime friend Margaret Rieck also joins the program to share her experience being a Living Donor having given one of her kidneys to a friend. The goal of today’s show is to raise awareness of the need for Living Donors, demystify the process, and ultimately encourage people to consider being a donor to save a life such as Odin’s.
