The Reluctant Donor
March 13, 2013
Hosted by Mary Beth Lodge
The last time you renewed your driver’s license, did you check the box that says “Organ Donor?” Suzanne Ruff of Mooresville, N.C., hopes the answer is yes. “My family would have pretty much been wiped off the face of the Earth if it weren’t for the generosity of organ donors,” she said. Her mother and two sisters, as well as several aunts and uncles and cousins have all needed kidney transplants to save their lives. Her family carries the gene for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), a hereditary disease for which there is no cure. Join us to hear this incredible story of information and inspiration! A portion of the proceeds from The Reluctant Donor will go towards kidney disease research. The Reluctant Donor (Beaver’s Pond Press, April 2010, $14.95) is also an eBook and is available for purchase through Amazon.com, www.thereluctantdonor.com, www.beaverspondbooks.com, Barnes and Noble and at select independent bookstores.
