About

This page was orginally created to find a kidney donor for Anne Casale-Skinner and we were successful in our mission.  Jennifer Boyd, donated her kidney which was named Bean to Anne on 11/08/11 at Mass General Hospital Boston.  We have decided to keep our sites alive in hopes of helping others in search of a donor as well as spread the word about organ donation.  For those that are considering to donate, are goal is to be a resource that you can reach out to others who have donated to hear their stories and get first hand the pros and cons of being a living kidney donor.   In addition, those that are unable to donate, there is still plenty that you can do to help.   Most importantly you can share these stories and bring awareness to others about the need for living organ donors.
