 Kristin  Kristin donated to her friend Keith to improve his health, quality of life, and to support his family and community of friends. Her mom was a role model.  Kristin said, "Knowing my mom was a donor, and that she had fully recovered, was very encouraging for me to consider donating.   I must get a certain sense of determination from my mother.  It also put me at ease to know she would be there during my surgery, having had first-hand experience of the entire process."
