Patient Success Story- Emmet Davitt

Overview:

Emmet Davitt wanted to donate a kidney to help family friend Sean Menard, 10, who was suffering from kidney failure. He was a not a match for Sean, but his willingness to be a part of the four-way kidney exchange allowed Sean, and three other people, the chance to get a kidney. Davitt shares his story, including his experience at UMMC, his quick recovery from the single incision kidney removal procedure and his emotions about being part of this life-changing exchange.
