    So happy that you were able to share and celebrate the family connection in such a strong way.

    Perhaps you know this other Ottawa family, but back in the late 70’s (or it may have even been early 80’s) my dear cousin Simone Goldberg (nee Brightstein), only sibling to her younger sister Avril, selflessly donated her kidney to Avril, so that Avril could go onto to enjoy many more years and be spared dialysis for the rest of those years.

    A beautiful story to share, now with the ease of a computer, but always with the heart and soul of the human condition.

    I, to donated my kidney to my big brother one year ago. What an amazing, wonderful experience. To see my brother walk into my room one day after surgery looking so healthy, rosy cheeks and all was nothing short of spectacular. I urge everyone to sign their donor cards, get on a registry, donate life.
    All the very best to you both for a very long and healthy life.
