Dialysis social worker donates kidney to a child Today’s Video of the Day from UT Southwestern Medical Center describes a dialysis social worker who dreamed of donating a kidney to a child in need.

Lisa James decided almost a decade ago that she wanted to become a living donor. In 2018, a ten-year-old girl from New Mexico was found to be Lisa’s perfect match.

The young girl was able to put dialysis treatments behind her, which she had been receiving for almost half of her life.
