Chamber CEO Donates Kidney
Brad Dean, 43 and the father of two children, is in perfect health. Yesterday morning at Duke University Medical Center, in a set of operations called a kidney paired donation, he gave one of his kidneys to a 67-year-old former Navy nurse who has suffered from genetic kidney disease for decades. The nurse’s 39-year-old daughter, a Duke pharmacist, had offered one of her kidneys to her mother, but she was the wrong blood type. So the daughter’s kidney will go to a 42-year-old former construction worker. Details and an update from the Myrtle Beach Sun News.
