An Amazing 56-Hour Transplant
In another part of my professional life I am a co-host for Mayo Clinic Radio. It's a weekly program that takes my interest in the world of medicine (thanks for saving my life chemo and radiation!) and combines it with my gift of gab.
Recently, I was part of a radio interview about a topic that nearly left me speechless. I want to share it with you for multiple reasons. First of all, the story of Andy Sandness and his face transplant is flat out amazing!
Secondly, I hope you will consider becoming an organ and tissue donor. Every 10 minutes, someone is added to the National Transplant Waiting List, so the need is great.
Finally, Mayo Clinic Radio is part of the Mayo News Network and my co-workers did a fantastic job telling this story! Settle in and check it out:
The interview I was part of on Mayo Clinic Radio will air next weekend. You'll be able to listen to the podcast here.
Here is another video about the story of Andy and his donor that was posted by the Associated Press:
