April is Donate Life Month - a month that we bring awareness to organ, eye and tissue donation.

Todays guest is Naomi Mauro, a parent of child, Ethan, born into end stage renal disease. She is also the mom to Lucas and Mackenzie. She lives in the country in SW Washington with her husband, Chad. Today we talk a little bit about Ethan journey to transplant but the focus of todays episode is on organ donation. Naomi and her family experience deciding to pursue transplant as a treatment, awaiting for the call for a deceased donor and connecting with the family five years after transplant.

With the  most children between 6-18 years old awaiting for a kidney transplant from a Deceased Donor, many more will never be listed as go strait to transplant with a Living Donor.. (
