    April is National Donate Life Month

    Many people in the Wisco family have been impacted by organ donors. It is fitting to recognize this since April is National Donate Life Month! Over 36,000 organ donations were performed in 2018, but many more are still waiting. Including Wisco alum Joel Kammueller ('88) and Ezekiel Gipson ('00) who are both looking for kidney donors. Please keep both in your prayers! For more information about living organ donations through UW-Madison hospital, visit this link.

    Recent kidney donor, Cynthia (Fitzsimmons) Krueger ('99), Assistant Director of Alumni Development at WLHS says, "Being a living organ donor was NEVER on my bucket list. Donating a kidney was an incredibly humbling experience. I was surprised at what a gift it was in my life and how it strengthened my faith and trust in God's unique plans for our lives. Never doubt what a difference YOU can make in this world!"

  • You can save a life -- living kidney donor needed

    Roughly seven years ago, Ezekiel Gipson ('00) was diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease, and his best chance of survival lies in the hands of someone willing to be a living kidney donor. Over the last 2 year his condition has worsened. He has three options for treatment: dialysis, a kidney transplant from a deceased donor or a kidney transplant from a living donor. Dialysis is only a temporary solution. While Ezekiel can remain on dialysis for many years, it is not a cure for kidney disease. It is also physically exhausting and time consuming, with treatment schedules as frequent as three times each week for four hours each session.
