To the Editor: We are BEYOND excited to share with you that Andrea had a successful kidney transplant on Thursday July 30th 2015!

The euphoria that our family feels is beyond description. The gratitude and love we have for our extraordinary and selfless donor cannot be expressed in words. She has given our daughter the most powerful thing any human can do for another: a new lease on life! We now share a lifetime bond with the newest member of our family.

We hope this will inspire others to give and save lives!!

The surgical team at University of Pennsylvania is made up of heroes; we will continue to celebrate their brilliant work.
