Austin Lee, Double Kidney Recipient
Austin became a part of our WRTC family when he was just 4 years old when he received his second chance at life because his mother decided to become a living kidney donor and donated one of her kidneys. Unfortunately, when Austin turned 18 he became tethered to dialysis, as his kidneys began failing again. After waiting for two years, Austin received his second kidney at the age of 21 as part of a kidney chain – the result of incredible scientific advancements in the field of transplantation. Throughout his battle with kidney disease, dialysis, surgeries, etc., he has never wavered from his commitment to what we do. Austin has volunteered over 230 hours of his time to WRTC and serves as a prime example of the difference a WRTC Donate Life Ambassador creates in our communities.
