A selfless sister

Kaylen Knutson

Living Donor, Minnesota

  • Kidney, February 5, 2018, Mayo Clinic

At the age of 24, Kaylen sacrificed and answered the call to donate her kidney to her younger & only brother, Jake. She agreed to this with unconditional love & bravery. Because of her selfless act of love our family remains whole. Because of Kaylen, Jake is “1” year kidney strong. She helped turn a tragedy into a lifesaving gift. She continues to help and serve others in her personal & professional life. She is her family’s angel & her brother’s biggest fan.

Kaylen is in the social work graduate program at U of M-Duluth. She helps children with behavioral health issues at Esstenia Health.

With neverending love and pride, we honor our daughter
