National Donate Life Month Call to Action: Local Man In Need of Kidney
CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) – One of the most common organs donated around the world are kidneys.
Lillian Jarvinen and Barry Walker are well acquainted with the life-saving value of a proper match.
Lilian Jarvinen is an altruistic donor. That means she’s a rare breed, volunteering to offer up one of her kidneys. Barry Walker is an MUSC patient in-need of one.
The two joined us in-studio to take us through their journeys of the intensive processes of donating and receiving a kidney.
