Irish Kidneys

Tim Kelly

Living Donor, Minnesota

  • Kidney, July 14, 2004, Mayo Clinic

I believe my Kidney’s are Lucky (Irish Luck) as I was a perfect match for my then 9 year daughter Carly who needed a Kidney Transplant in 2004. Carly has ARPKD which is a very rare disease which also affects the Liver which she also received a transplant for in 2019.

Carly was an All American Cheer Leader in High school even after a Kidney Transplant.

Organ donation is so important for our family and we are thankful for the donor and donor families that have given Carly life. God bless!!

Donors Rock!
