Exciting News – Our Kidney Story: Part 1

I’m excited and humbled to share some very special news with you.

On January 17, I have the privilege of donating one of my kidneys to our very own TinySuperhero, Super Michael!

In one very intense day, surgeon Dr. Varma will remove one of my kidneys at St. Louis University Hospital, transport it through an underground tunnel into Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, and give it to Super Michael! It’s phenomenally amazing that this is possible…isn’t it?

I am excited to share our full story with you in the coming weeks, but wanted to start by sharing the news and these precious photos that my friend Alex at Pics & Paws Photography captured for us.

I was hesitant on how to best share this – I am excited to share our journey and also nervous of what others might think. But Michael and I have an amazing opportunity to raise awareness for organ donation, so that is what we are going to do.

I pray that not only will my spare kidney change Michael’s story, but that together we can make an impact for the 100,000+ people in the US who are currently awaiting a life-saving organ transplant.

Thank you, as always, for your support. It is an honor to join Michael’s journey in this way, just as it is an honor to be a part of our TinySuperheroes community everyday.

Catch part two of this story here.

Much love,

Robyn

    I think that you are very brave. A woman at my church is donating a kidney to her mother next week. It’s amazing what medical technology can do. Best wishes to both of you for a quick recovery.

    I work with a cousin of Micheal’s grandmother on his mom’s side. Have followed his story since before he was born. Prayers for his and his family and also for you and your family. You are such a special person! God bless you all!
