Donate Life celebration April 23
Donor families and transplant recipients came together today at Upstate University Hospital to celebrate life in recognition of National Donate Life Month. Marangeli Santiago-Freeman, above, talked with Time Warner Cable News reporter Katie Gibas about the day she and her wife, Gerry Freeman, received the call from Ellen Havens of the Upstate Transplant Program, informing the couple that Gerry was a match. Marangeli received Gerry’s kidney a year ago. They are both in great health today and spoke out about how the donation changed their lives for the better. There are currently 218 people on Upstate’s kidney transplant waiting list. For more information on how to become a living kidney donor, visit Upstate Transplant Program.
