My story begins with my daughter Laura and it is actually her story. In 2008 she was told by her doctors she would need a kidney transplant. So on January 30, 2009, she received her kidney transplant and the school, teachers and employees were kept informed of her status. A couple of weeks after her transplant, a SMART volunteer showed up at the hospital and brought her a t-shirt and hat and books and read with her. He was informed by her school that she was in the hospital so he came to visit her. That was pretty exciting and fun for her.
