We are very passionate about organ donation, and we work tirelessly in honor and memory of our Dad. Our father, Steve, was a two-time kidney transplant patient. He was diagnosed with Vasculitis at age 19, and that lead to eventual kidney failure. He was placed on dialysis during both transplant processes.
Our father had his first kidney transplant in 1991 from a deceased donor, and his second in 2007 from our mother, Amy Muenchow. They were the perfect match! Both transplants took place at UW Madison Transplant Clinic.
Twice, our Dad was given a second change due to a life-saving donor. His transplants gave him 25 more years of life. Unfortunately we lost our father in 2014 to stage-four lung cancer, due to his suppressed immune system. We have made it our mission to spread the word about organ, eye, and tissue donation in the State of Wisconsin, while keeping our father's legacy alive and honoring his memory.
We were honored to be featured in UW Health Organ and Tissue Donation's 2020 transplant calendar. Check out the full story below!
