new here

hello, I received my kidney transplant on 5/20/2005 at Indiana University Medical Center in Indianapolis, IN. My older brother is my donor.

I reside outside of Indy with my husband (who is also a match -in case this one doesn't last) and our 2 fur babies. I work full time a federal halfway house/homeless shelter for veterans/soon to be add residential substance abuse treatment program.

For fun I teach a roller derby skating academy for fun and fitness each Saturday.

cannot wait to get to know you all.

  • Hi Penny and congratulations. I too am a kidney transplant recipient , 2x. My first gift of life was from my brother and that kidney lasted 27 years. Had my 2nd transplant 2 1/2 years ago and that was from a deceased donor. You sound awesome in all that you do for work and play. Best, Jean

  • Welcome Penny! Sounds like you are doing some wonderful work to help people struggling with substance abuse.
