Monroe, NC

“Our family says 'thank you'...

Joe has fought a long battle with kidney disease that began in 2000.  Early treatment later led to dialysis and ultimately a kidney transplant. But when Joe’s body rejected the new kidney, yet another transplant was needed.

Waiting years for a new donor, Joe was hospitalized with complications, requiring two separate life-saving blood transfusions. Then something amazing happened.  Joe’s wife Amy – a blood donor since the age of 18 – felt led to participate in the paired organ donation program at Carolinas Medical Center and The Johns Hopkins Hospital.  A match was found, resulting in two lives saved through an extraordinary swap.  Amy donated a kidney to the wife of a man who donated his kidney to Joe.

“I’m honored and humbled I could help a family who has suffered like ours,” says Amy. Both couples, once strangers, are now dear friends. Today, all enjoy normal lives without dialysis.

Behind every organ transplant there are many donors. When you donate at CBCC, you’re helping patients like Joe. The Clipstons and their two sons thank local donors like you for giving blood, giving them hope and saving Joe’s life.

CBCC is the primary blood supplier to the region’s patients and hospitals. Every Drop Stays Here. Saving Local Lives.

To local donors like you.”
