The best of transplant 2011 at Barnes-Jewish Hospital
In the season of giving, as our gift to you, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite transplant stories from the Washington University- Barnes-Jewish Hospital Transplant Center in 2011. Enjoy these two for starters:
First, the story of someone who gave the gift of life, and in doing so, got a gift of his own. From March, here’s the story of Dave Mouser, a man whose decision to donate a kidney to his wife ended up saving his own life.
Now, someone who became a transplant pioneer at Barnes-Jewish after receiving a second chance at life because of the generosity of a donor family. In July, we told you the story of Tish Hatley, a Barnes-Jewish nurse who became the first person to have a combined heart-liver transplant at here.
Tomorrow: A man who’s tooting his horn about his liver transplant.
