Kidney transplant recipients and donors reunited
NEW YORK (WABC) -- In Manhattan there was a celebration of lives transformed.
Weill Cornell Medical Center on the Upper East Side hosted a party for kidney transplant recipients.
These children and their families celebrated not just how lives were saved, but also how lives have changed.
10-year-old Evan Hubbard was just 5 when he was part of the first-ever living-donor kidney transplant chain.
"This year is like my fifth anniversary, and again it's really epic, it's pretty epic," Hubbard said.
Evan's parents were not a match for him and he was part of the first-ever living-donor kidney transplant chain.
The generosity of others still chokes up Evan's mother.
Thursday night's event gave doctors and nurses a chance to catch up with their former patients and their families.
